Start of CMA Merger Investigation: Amazon investment in Deliveroo


The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) is considering whether it is or may be the case that this transaction will result 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 may be expected to result, in a substantial lessening of competition within any market or markets in the United Kingdom for goods or services. 


The CMA announced the launch of its merger inquiry by notice to the Parties and has a deadline of 11 December for its phase 1 decision.
