  • Nylex Ltd Group's Esky hard and soft cooler business

Market definition

The ACCC considered the completed acquisition in the context of national markets for the manufacture and supply of hard and soft coolers.

Competition analysis

The ACCC considered that the completed acquisition was unlikely to substantially lessen competition in the relevant markets given the presence of alternative suppliers of hard and soft coolers in Australia which are likely to constrain the merged firm.
