Transpacific Industries Group Ltd - completed acquisition of The Waste People Pty Ltd

Acquirer(s)

  • Transpacific Industries Group Ltd

Target(s)

  • The Waste People Pty Ltd

Market definition

The ACCC considered the completed acquisition in the context of:
- the south-east NSW market for the collection and transport of non-hazardous liquids; and
- the south-east NSW market for the collection and transport of solid waste.

Competition analysis

The ACCC considered that the completed acquisition was unlikely to result in a substantial lessening of competition since Transpacific had not been actively servicing the relevant markets and alternative suppliers, such as Watt's Waste, would continue to constrain the merged firm.
