- Vantex Pty Limited
SummaryIngram Micro Pty Limited proposed to acquire Vantex Pty Limited.
Market definitionWhile the ACCC did not consider it necessary to reach a definitive view on market definition in this matter, the proposed acquisition was considered in the context of the "two-tier" distribution segment of the national market for the supply of IT products.
Competition analysisThe ACCC considered that the proposed acquisition was unlikely to result in a substantial lessening of competition in the relevant markets. Factors informing this conclusion included:
- the proposed acquisition does not involve the removal of a vigorous and effective competitor; and
- buyers have the ability to bypass distributors and acquire products directly from manufacturers.
