    Slug and Lettuce owner gets go-ahead to become top pub group

    The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) said it had accepted the undertakings given by Stonegate last month, which included selling 42 sites, to address competition concerns. British restaurant and pub operators have had to cope with lower consumer spending and higher expenses, most notably from wage inflation and property costs, following Britain's vote to leave the European Union. Stonegate, which is owned by private equity fund TDR, is best known for its Walkabout, Yates and Slug and Lettuce chains.

    UPDATE 2-UK watchdog flags price concerns in Stonegate/Ei pub deal

    Britain's competition watchdog has flagged concerns about potential price increases at some pubs from a merger of Slug and Lettuce pub owner Stonegate and rival Ei Group, which would create the country's biggest pub operator. The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) said on Friday Stonegate Pub Company's proposed purchase of Ei Group did not raise UK-wide competition concerns but could damage competition in 51 local areas.

    UPDATE 1-UK's CMA begins probe into Slug and Lettuce pub owner's takeover of Ei

    The UK's competition watchdog said on Friday it started an investigation into whether the potential merger of pub owner Stonegate and larger rival Ei Group , which would create Britain's biggest pub operator, would erode competition. The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) said it has begun its phase 1 investigation following the European Commission's decision to refer the case to the UK. The CMA also said it was inviting comments as to whether the 1.27 billion pound merger would lead to lessening of competition in the UK, as the deal would result in Stonegate taking control of some 4,000 additional pubs.
