JD Sports mulls fight against watch­dog fine

The Daily Telegraph - Business - - Business -

JD Sports is con­sid­er­ing fight­ing a £300,000 fine from the com­pe­ti­tion watch­dog re­lated to its ac­qui­si­tion of ri­val Foota­sy­lum. The Com­pe­ti­tion and Mar­kets Au­thor­ity said it breached a so-called hold or­der it im­posed last year dur­ing an in­quiry into the merger. This meant the firms had to run sep­a­rately un­til the CMA’s in­quiry was fi­nalised.
