Affected market: Freight ferry services between UK and Sweden
On the basis of the information available to it, the Office of Fair
Trading has decided that the completed transaction does not qualify for
investigation under the mergers provisions of the Enterprise Act 2002
(the Act), because the transaction involving the sub-charter of two
vessels and crew by DFDS A/S from North Sea RoRo AB (a subsidiary of
NTEX AB) is not of an enterprise as defined in section 129 of the Act. A
relevant merger situation has, therefore, not been created.
