Hamilton Radiology seeks clearance to acquire Medimaging

The Commerce Commission has received an application from Hamilton Radiology Limited. The application relates to the formation of a joint venture between Hamilton Radiology, Midland MRI and Medimaging. The joint venture will acquire the radiology assets of Medimaging.

Hamilton Radiology, Midland MRI and Medimaging all provide private radiology services in Hamilton including X-rays, ultrasounds and MRI scans.

In considering the application, the Commission’s role is to determine whether the acquisition would harm competition in the market to the extent that there would be a substantial lessening of competition.
