Phase 1

Invitation to comment: closes 21 September 2018

7 September 2018: The CMA is considering whether it is or may be the case that this transaction has resulted in the creation of a relevant merger situation under the merger provisions of the Enterprise Act 2002 and, if so, whether the creation of that situation has resulted, or may be expected to result, in a substantial lessening of competition within any market or markets in the United Kingdom for goods or services.

To assist it with this assessment, the CMA invites comments on the transaction from any interested party.

Launch of merger inquiry

6 September 2018: The CMA announced the launch of its merger inquiry by notice to the parties.

Initial enforcement order

On 5 July 2018, the CMA served an initial enforcement order under section 72(2) of the Enterprise Act 2002 on Oshare SL and Tradebe Environmental Services Limited, in relation to the completed acquisition by Tradebe Environmental Services Limited of Avanti Environmental Holdings Limited.
