CMA to probe DMGT's acquisition of i newspaper

(Sharecast News) - The Competition and Markets Authority said on Wednesday that it will look into whether Daily Mail & General Trust's acquisition of the i newspaper from JPI Media will lessen competition.
The competition watchdog said it was considering whether the completed £49.6m acquisition, which was announced in November, will lead to a "substantial lessening of competition" in the UK.

Interested parties now have until 5 February to submit comments on the matter.

At 1015 GMT, DMGT shares were down 0.1% at 837p.
