Viridor / JWT Holdings Ltd

OFT closed case: Completed acquisition by Viridor Waste Management Limited of JWT Holdings Limited.

Affected market: Waste Management

No. ME/5599/12

Found not to qualify.

On the basis of the information available to it, the Office of Fair Trading has decided that the completed acquisition by Viridor Waste Management Limited of JWT Holdings Limited 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.
