On the basis of the information available to it, the Office of Fair
Trading has decided that the completed acquisition of Centerpulse AG by
Zimmer Holdings Inc 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.
