Midland News Association Ltd / Telford FM
OFT closed case: Anticipated acquisition by Midland News Association Limited of a controlling stake in Telford FM.
Affected market: Radio and newspaper advertising
On the basis of the information available to it, the OFT has decided that the anticipated acquisition by Midland News Association Limited of a controlling stake in Telford FM 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.
