Affected market: Automotive shock absorbers
On the basis of the information available to it, the OFT has decided
that the proposed acquisition of A.P. Amortiguadores SA by Kayaba
Industry Co Limited does not qualify for investigation under the mergers
provisions of the Enterprise Act 2002, 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.
