The Australian Competition Tribunal will reassess the proposed merger between Tabcorp and Tatts Group after the Federal Court upheld an appeal against its decision to approve the deal. However, the court has placed a five-day embargo on disclosing its reasons for ruling in favour of the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission, which will give the competition regular limited time to prepare a new submission on the $A11bn merger. The ACCC had argued that several points of law regarding the merger needed to be clarified.
