Sepura deal under UK regulatory spotlight
The £74m acquisition of walkie-talkie manufacturer Sepura (SEPU) by Chinese firm Hytera Communications is being reviewed by the UK Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy on public interest grounds.
The department is also asking the Competition and Markets Authority to look at the transaction, approved by shareholders in February, given Sepura’s commercial arrangements with UK agencies. (TS)
