    UK's CMA says it may accept Rentokil's proposals on Mitie deal

    The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA), which had raised questions over pricing and choices available to customers after Rentokil's deal, said it had received proposals related to the acquisition of MPCL Ltd from Rentokil on April 23. Mitie had sold the business to Rentokil for 40 million pounds last year, and Rentokil had until April 23 to send its proposals to the CMA. Rentokil did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    UK competition watchdog concerned by impact of Mitie-Rentokil deal

    In an unusual move by the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) after a merger has been completed, the agency gave Rentokil a deadline of April 23 to make proposals to address its concerns or face an in-depth investigation. "Having considered a wide range of evidence, it (CMA) has found there could be a substantial reduction in competition, which may lead to higher prices or reduced quality for customers," the said in a statement. "While we are pleased that the UK Competition and Markets Authority has found no substantial lessening of competition in the local and regional customer sectors, we will now review the decision in detail and consider our next steps," a spokesman for Rentokil said in an email.

    Rentokil to offload pension risks to PIC

    The bulk annuity insurance "buy-in" allows Rentokil to transfer pension risks for some 14,200 members, and such deals are increasingly common as companies seek to offload pension obligations that otherwise sit on balance sheets, limiting their financial options. British companies are expected to try and offload a record amount of risk linked to their pension schemes in 2019 as growth in life expectancy eases and interest rates rise, making deals more attractive for insurance firms. The "buy-in" signed by Rentokil has been agreed in anticipation of a full "buy-out" of the scheme, the FTSE-100 group said.
