The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) has published details of 38 sites MFG plans to sell in order to avoid a detailed investigation into its takeover of MFG.

The disclosure came in a notice from the CMA which detailed for the first time the undertakings MFG has offered to remedy its concerns.

The CMA has revealed the local areas where it believes competition could be affected because of “overlaps” between MFG and MRH sites, and it has listed the sites MFG is willing to sell (see table below).

MFG will be expected to either sell the freehold of the sites, or subject to the CMA’s approval and with further competition safeguards, it may lease them.

In its assessment of the undertakings by MFG, the CMA also revealed that MFG had provided evidence that there are several potential suitable purchasers for all the sites.

The CMA gave notice that it proposes to accept the undertakings, but before the final decision is made it will allow interested parties to make representations, and it may make modifications to the undertakings as a result.

The deadline for comments is November 5.
