    Sainsbury’s Asda Defeat Is a Victory for Germany

    Almost a year since British grocery giant J Sainsbury Plc clinched a clever 7.3 billion pound ($9.4 billion) deal to buy Walmart Inc.’s Asda, the U.K.’s Competition and Markets Authority has blocked the transaction. British supermarkets will have to continue to do their best to compete, with one potential response – combining as a way to cut costs and ease the pressure from price-slashing rivals – shut off to them. Mike Coupe, Sainsbury’s chief executive, can legitimately say he tried to do a deal that was in the best interests of consumers, employees and shareholders, but was prohibited from doing so.

    UK regulator to give final verdict on Sainsbury's-Asda deal

    Britain's competition regulator will publish its final report on supermarket group Sainsbury's takeover of Walmart-owned rival Asda on Thursday, with most analysts and competition lawyers seeing little chance of the deal proceeding. Sainsbury's own share price - down 19 percent over the last three months - has also indicated an expectation that the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) will either block the 7.3 billion pound takeover outright or conditionally approve it subject to remedies that would be so severe as to make the deal unpalatable. Sainsbury's and Asda agreed last April to combine their businesses, aiming to overtake market leader Tesco.
