Affected market: Electricity transmission
On the basis of the information available to it, the Office of Fair
Trading has decided that the anticipated acquisition by EirGrid plc of
SONI Limited 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.
