The OFT is considering whether this acquisition has resulted in the creation of a relevant merger situation under the merger provisions of the Enterprise Act 2002 and, if so, whether the creation of that situation has resulted, or may be expected to result, in a substantial lessening of competition within any market or markets in the United Kingdom for goods or services.
Launch of OFT merger inquiry: 11 March 2014
The OFT launched its merger inquiry following receipt of a satisfactory submission on 11 March 2014.
