Dye & Durham Evaluating Options following CMA Decision on TM Group Acquisition

TORONTO, Aug. 3, 2022 /CNW/ – Dye & Durham Limited (TSX: DND) (“Dye & Durham” or the “Company”), a leading provider of cloud-based, efficient workflow software for legal and business professionals, today provided the following statement in response to the United Kingdom’s Competition and Markets Authority (“CMA”) Final Report following its review of Dye & Durham’s acquisition of TM Group (UK) Limited (“TMG”):

The CMA has found that Dye & Durham’s acquisition of TMG, which closed in July 2021, would substantially lessen competition in the supply of property search report bundles in England and Wales. The CMA also asserts that the only effective way to address the issues it has identified would be for Dye & Durham to sell the entirety of TMG to a third party.

Dye & Durham strongly disagrees with the CMA’s decision and continues to believe that the acquisition of TMG would be beneficial for the search report market and its customers. The Company is reviewing the CMA’s Final Report in detail and will carefully consider its options and next steps, including potentially appealing the decision. In considering those options the Company will take the following factors, among others, into account:

  • The minimal revenue and EBITDA generated by TMG compared to the Company’s global businesses;
  • A review of the detailed reasons published by the CMA;
  • The advice it receives from financial and legal advisors; and
  • The Company’s focus on other priorities, in particular, the Company’s focus on closing the LINK transaction.
