Affected market: Chemical production
On the basis of the information available to it, the Office of Fair
Trading has decided that the proposed acquisition of the speciality
chemicals business of General Electric Company by Crompton Corporation
does not qualify for investigation under the mergers provisions of the
Enterprise Act 2002, 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.
