Transdev plc / Bournemouth Transport plc

OFT closed case: Anticipated acquisition by Transdev plc of Bournemouth Transport plc.

Affected market: Bus transport services

No. ME/1851/05

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