UK: Regulator invites comments on First Data Corporation buy

 |  May 13, 2019
The UK Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) is inviting comments on the anticipated acquisition of First Data Corporation by Fiserv, Inc.

The invitation to comment closes on May 27, 2019.

The regulator is considering whether it may be the case that this transaction if carried into effect, 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.
