Ardagh International Holdings Limited and Redfearn Glass Limited (formerly Rexam Glass Barnsley Limited): A Report on the Acquisition by Ardagh International Holdings Limited of Redfearn Glass Limited (formerly Rexam Glass Barnsley Limited)
The Stationery Office, Jan 17, 2006 - Business & Economics - 73 pages
The Commission's report examines the completed acquisition of Redfearn Glass Ltd by Ardagh International Holdings Ltd, as both companies overlap in the manufacture of glass containers used as packaging in the food and beverage industries. Issues discussed include: a background review of the industry; the merger situation and its rationale; jurisdictional aspects; product market and geographic market definition; the effects of the merger and the counterfactual situation. The Commission considers concerns over the effects on market competition of Ardagh's increased market power, and concludes, on the balance of evidence, that the merger has not resulted, and may not be expected to result, in a substantial lessening of competition.
