Affected market: Anaesthetic delivery systems and ventilators
On the basis of the information available to it, the OFT has decided
that the completed acquisition of Siemens' Medical Life Support Systems
Business by Getinge AB 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.
