The Competition Commission recently prohibited the mergers involving Clover S.A. and Nkunzi Milkway; Life Healthcare and Lowveld Hospital; and Hosken Consolidated and Atterbell Investment. The mergers raised competition and/or public interest concerns. It has been reported that the parties to the Life Healthcare / Lowveld Hospital merger will approach the Competition Tribunal for reconsideration of the merger.
