CMA announce provisional findings

Updated: Apr 10, 2019

The CMA have announced their preliminary findings on the proposed Sainsbury's Asda merger.

SUPR view:

Risk of a substantial lessening of competition (SLC) across:

- 629 local markets – supermarkets sales

- 290 local markets - online groceries

- Over 300 store disposals to remedy the SLC

- Consistent with our analysis when excluding discounters

- Likely to be difficult for the chains to address the concerns.
