Dye & Durham Ltd. (DND-T) issued a statement at the market open on Wednesday in response to the United Kingdom’s Competition and Markets Authority Phase 2 review of its acquisition of TM Group (UK) Limited.
“The CMA has provisionally found that Dye & Durham’s acquisition of TMG, which closed in July 2021, would lessen competition in the UK property search services market,” the release stated. “The CMA also asserts that the only effective way to address the issues it has identified would be for Dye & Durham to sell TMG to a third party. Lastly, the CMA press release gives the erroneous impression that Dye & Durham failed to notify the CMA regarding the transaction when in fact there was no obligation to do so under applicable UK law, which provides only for voluntary notification.”
The company said it “disagrees” with the findings and is evaluating its potential options.
The purchase price will be funded with cash on the REIT’s balance sheet.
