Affected market: Sports equipment, clothing and footwear; leisure
On the basis of the information available to it, the Office of Fair
Trading has decided that the completed acquisition by The John David
Group plc of the business and certain assets of Allsports (Retail)
Limited 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.
