Green light to Clicks’ offer for Pick n Pay pharmacies


The Competition Commission has given retail pharmacy Clicks the green light to acquire 25 Pick n Pay retail pharmacies, reported Fin24 (6 October 2021). Clicks owns about 620 retail stores across the country, as well as United Pharmaceutical Distributors, Unicorn Pharmaceuticals and Clicks Direct Medicines.
The CC also recommended that the Competition Tribunal approves DisChem’s bid for a stake in Kaelo Holdings, as it “is unlikely to result in a substantial prevention or lessening of competition in any relevant market”.
