- NDD Distribution Pty Ltd
SummaryOn 1 August 2010 Network Services Company acquired a number of assets and client contracts of NDD Distribution Pty Ltd.
Market definitionThe ACCC considered the completed acquisition in the context of the national market for magazine distribution services.
Competition analysisThe ACCC concluded that the completed acquisition was unlikely to substantially lessen competition in the relevant markets. In forming this view, the ACCC had regard to a number of factors including:
- the competitive constraint posed by existing market participants, including Gordon & Gotch and Fairfax, along with smaller magazine distributors; and
- the threat of new entry by logistics service providers, which have pre-existing distribution routes, capital and infrastructure suitable for use in magazine distribution.
