Statement Of Preliminary Issues Released For Farmlands’ Proposed Acquisition Of Seales Winslow

The Commerce Commission has published a statement of preliminary issues relating to an application from Farmlands Co-operative Society Limited seeking clearance to acquire 100% of the shares of Seales Winslow Limited.

The statement outlines the key competition issues that the Commission considers important in deciding whether or not to grant clearance to the proposed acquisition.

The Commission invites interested parties to provide comments on the likely competitive effects of the proposed acquisition. Submissions can be sent by email to registrar@comcom.govt.nz with the reference ‘Farmlands/Seales Winslow’ in the subject line. Any submissions should be received by close of business on 7 December 2023.

The Commission is currently scheduled to make a decision on the application by 25 January 2024. However, this date may be extended as the investigation progresses.

The Statement of Preliminary Issues and a public version of the application can be found on the Commission’s case register.

Background
We will give clearance to a proposed merger if we are satisfied that the merger is unlikely to have the effect of substantially lessening competition in a market.

Further information explaining how the Commission assesses a merger application is available on our website.
