12:49 EDTBKWBurger King, Tim Hortons deal cleared by Canadian Competition Bureau
The Canadian Competition Bureau announced that it has issued a No Action Letter with respect to Burger King’s (BKW) acquisition of Tim Hortons (THI). The bureau concluded that this transaction is unlikely to result in a substantial lessening or prevention of competition due to, among other things, the existence of a large number of competitors and the low barriers to entry in the fast food industry. The transaction is subject to other regulatory approvals. A NAL confirms that the bureau has reviewed a specific proposed transaction and concluded that it will not, at this time, challenge that proposed transaction before the Competition Tribunal under the mergers provisions of the Competition Act.
