- Roadshow Distributors Group
SummaryVillage Roadshow Limited has obtained full ownership of Roadshow Distributors Group by acquiring Amalgamated Holdings Limited's holding of 50%.
Market definitionThe ACCC considered the completed acquisition in the context of the national market for film distribution.
Competition analysisOn 22 August 2007, the ACCC decided to not intervene in the acquisition.
The ACCC considered that the completed acquisition is unlikely to substantially lessen competition in the national market for film distribution because the exit of Amalgamated Holdings Limited from film distribution creates a new non-vertically integrated exhibitor with which film distributors will be able to deal.
