CMA launches Trinity Mirror/Express merger investigation

The CMA has launched an initial investigation into the completed Trinity Mirror/Express merger.

Trinity Mirror plc took over part of Northern & Shell Media Group Limited, including the Express and Star newspapers, in February 2018.

The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) will now assess whether this deal could significantly reduce competition within the UK media sector, in line with its 
merger guidance.

The deadline for the initial decision is 7 June 2018. Further details, including how interested parties can submit evidence, are available on the investigation 
case page.
