Merger submission withdrawn: 11 April 2014
The CMA has closed its merger enquiry following the withdrawal of the merger submission. The CMA understands that the proposed merger has been abandoned.
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 CMA merger inquiry: 13 March 2014
The OFT launched its merger inquiry following receipt of a satisfactory submission on 13 March 2014.
