OFT closed case: Completed acquisition by Nord Anglia plc of Leapfrog Day Nurseries plc.

Affected market: Child day care activities

No. ME/1128/04

On the basis of the information available to it, the Office of Fair Trading has decided that the proposed acquisition of Leapfrog Day Nurseries plc by Nord Anglia Education 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.
