John David Group plc / Allsports (Retail) Ltd
OFT closed case: Completed acquisition by The John David Group plc of the business and certain assets of Allsports (Retail) Limited
Affected market: Sports equipment, clothing and footwear; leisure wear
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.
