Rexam plc / Risdon Pharma Group

OFT closed case: Completed acquisition by Rexam plc of The Risdon Pharma Group.

Affected market: Pharmaceutical packaging

No. ME/1371/03

On the basis of the information available to it, the OFT has decided that the completed acquisition of the Risdon Pharma Group by Rexam plc 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.
