IVC Luxembourg S.A. / Resilient Flooring Industries S.A.
OFT closed case: Anticipated acquisition by IVC Luxembourg S.A. of Resilient Flooring Industries S.A.
Affected market: Manufacture of resilient flooring
The parties notified the Office of Fair Trading on 27 January 2006. The administrative deadline is 24 March 2006.
On the basis of the information available to it, the Office of Fair Trading has decided that the Anticipated acquisition by IVC Luxembourg S.A. of Resilient Flooring Industries S.A. 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.
