Completed acquisition by Extra MSA Group of the freeholds of nine motorway service areas from Serena Properties Limited
Affected market: Investor property landlord of motorway service
areas and petrol stations
The acquisition was completed on 21 March 2013. The statutory
deadline is 20 August 2013.
On the basis of the information available to it, the Office of Fair
Trading has decided that the completed acquisition of the freeholds
of nine MSAs from Serena Properties Limited by Extra MSA Group does
not qualify for investigation under the mergers provisions of the
Enterprise Act 2002 (the Act), because the freeholds of the nine
MSAs are not an enterprise as defined in section 129 of the Act. A
relevant merger situation has, therefore, not been created.
