- Detagana Pty Ltd trading as Red Paper Group
SummaryCPI Group Limited proposes to purchase the business and net tangible assets of Detagana Pty Limited which in Australia trades as Red Paper Group
Market definitionThe proposed acquisition was considered in the context of the national market for the supply of fine and copy paper by merchants (distributors).
Competition analysisThe ACCC considered that the proposed acquisition was unlikely to substantially lessen competition in the national market for the supply of fine and copy paper by merchants because of the following factors:
- the ability of customers to switch to alternative fine and copy paper merchants; and
- smaller fine and copy paper merchants appear likely to act as effective competitive constraint on the merged entity due to the relatively low barriers to expansion in the relevant market.
