Meade Corporation Ltd / Thyssen GB Ltd

OFT closed case: Completed acquisition by Meade Corporation Limited of Thyssen GB Limited.

Affected market: Construction

No. ME/1445/03

On the basis of the information available to it, the OFT has decided that the completed acquisition of Thyssen GB Limited by Meade Corporation 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.
