16.09.2019 – Tobii appeals merger decision to the CAT

The Competition Appeals Tribunal has today published an application on behalf of Tobii AB (a manufacturer of adaptive and assistive communication technology for the disabled) for a review of the Competition and Market Authority’s decision to block the company’s merger with Smartbox.  The grounds of Tobii’s appeal include claimed failings of procedural fairness and a failure by the CMA to collect sufficiently relevant and reliable evidence.  Economic Insight are advising Tobii in relation to the merger decision appeal.
