Capita Group / Vertex Private Sector

OFT closed case: Completed acquisition by Capita Group plc of Vertex Private Sector.

Affected market: Business process outsourcing

No. ME/5232/11

On the basis of the information available to it, the Office of Fair Trading has decided that the completed acquisition of Vertex Private Sector by Capita Group plc does not qualify for investigation under the mergers provisions of the Enterprise Act 2002 (the Act), because neither the UK turnover test nor the share of supply test in section 23 of the Act is met. A relevant merger situation has, therefore, not been created.
