Morse plc / Diagonal plc

OFT closed case: Anticipated acquisition by Morse plc of Diagonal plc.

Affected market: Software

No. ME/1221/04

On the basis of the information available to it, the Office of Fair Trading has decided that the anticipated acquisition by Morse plc of Diagonal plc 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.
