E-Crossnet / ITG

OFT closed case: Acquisition of E-Crossnet by ITG.

Affected market: Financial services

No. ME/1559/05

On the basis of the information available to it, the Office of Fair Trading has decided that the acquisition by ITG of E-Crossnet  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.
