The AADA has been invited by the ACCC to provide a submission to their consideration of the merger authorisation from Gumtree for its proposed acquisition of Cox Media (CarsGuide/Autotrader).
The AADA would like the views of members on this issue and in particular whether it could lead to enhanced competition in the automotive classifieds sector, which could in turn benefit Dealers making use of these digital platforms.
AADA would appreciate any feedback regarding your views on this issue which will assist us in forming a policy position that can be used in our submission and upcoming meetings with the ACCC. Please provide your feedback to Alex Tewes no later than 5 February.
Written submissions must be lodged by 10 February. Further information about the ACCC’s consideration of the proposed acquisition is available from the Merger authorisations register.
