Go-Ahead Group / Plymouth CityBus Ltd

OFT closed case: Completed acquisition by Go-Ahead Group plc of Plymouth CityBus Limited

Affected market: Buses

No. ME/4386/10

Found not to qualify.

On the basis of the information available to it, the Office of Fair Trading has decided that the completed acquisition of Plymouth CityBus limited by Go-Ahead Group plc 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.
