Islamabad, November 27, 2014 (PPI-OT): The Competition Commission of Pakistan (CCP) today issued its no objection certificate to THS Kingsway Fund for the proposed acquisition of shares of HUM Network Limited by it. The transaction was notified under the Competition Act 2010 on 7 November 2014.
The CCP carried out a detailed and intensive Phase I review, which included obtaining market shares of the merger parties and their competitors in Pakistan.
