Tindle Newspapers / Y Cymro and Radio Ceredigion

OFT closed case: Completed acquisition by Tindle Newspapers of Y Cymru and Radio Ceredigion.

Affected market: Welsh language media

No. ME/1163/04

On the basis of the information available to it, the Office of Fair Trading has decided that the completed acquisition by Tindle Newspapers Limited of Y Cymro and Radio Ceredigion 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.
