The CC has concluded that the completed acquisition by Capita Group plc of IBS OPENSystems could damage competition in the market for the supply of revenues and benefits software to local authorities in the UK. The acquisition combined two competing suppliers leaving only one other supplier to compete for business. The CC will now begin a consultation process in which it will identify the most appropriate way to address this loss of competition; it is possible that they may order either partial or full divestments of the acquired business.
