英国监管部门叫停StubHub/Viagogo合并

英国监管部门叫停了在线票务平台StubHub与Viagogo的合并进程,本次合并为全现金交易,价值40亿零5000万欧元。

英国监管部门叫停了在线票务平台StubHub与Viagogo的合并进程,本次合并为全现金交易,价值40亿零5000万欧元。

英国竞争和市场管理局(CMA)发出禁令,要求两家公司不得采取任何会“导致StubHub与Viagogo业务整合”的行动。

与此同时,CMA还在继续调查合并是否会让Viagogo在票务市场上拥有过多的权力和主导地位,已责成这两家公司维持其独立实体的性质,并在继续调查期间保持独立的客户和供应商名单。

两家企业也不可以将各自的员工进行整合,还要定期证明自己遵守了相关要求。

此前,CMA称,相信两家公司是在未获监管机构最终批准时就提前开始合并操作。

CMA表示,“有理由怀疑有些事情正在进行或酝酿中,一旦做完的话,那(两家公司)就完全一样了。”

但StubHub和Viagogo均在声明中表示,有信心完成合并。合并原计划在今年第一季度完成。

StubHub表示:“我们不希望两方的合并受到任何影响,我们正按之前定好的节点推进。”

Viagogo表示:“保持双方业务独立本就是合并计划的一部分,我们完全认可CMA对该交易审查的重要性。”

不过,CMA的介入给StubHub的合并业务带来了难度。近期,该公司刚刚裁员100余人。
