Future under scrutiny over Highbury swoop

By Johnny Minkley
Specifically, the OFT states that the referral is: “Made on the basis of concerns that the combination of the largest supplier of computer games magazines in the UK with its largest competitor may be expected to lead to a substantial lessening of competition in the UK.”

Completion of the acquisition, which was due this month, would give Future near-total dominance in the UK specialist games magazine sector.

The Competition Commission is due to report on its findings by September 28th 2005.
