Britain SSE and Npower did not offer measures
The CMA has referred the proposed merger of SSE Retail and Npower for an in-depth investigation after finding competition concerns.
SSE and Npower did not offer measures to address the CMA’s concerns, and so it has referred the merger for a more in-depth, Phase 2 investigation.
A decision on the merger will now be made by a group of independent panel members supported by a case team of CMA staff. The deadline for the final report is 22 October. ■
