Merger Update



The OFT has announced that it is consulting on proposed undertakings on the
completed acquisition by The Dunfermline Press Limited (DPL) of the Berkshire
regional newspapers business from Trinity Mirror plc. This follows the OFT's
announcement on 4 February 2008 that the OFT has suspended its duty to refer
because it is considering whether to accept appropriate undertakings from DPL in
lieu of reference. The draft undertakings includes the name of a proposed
purchaser for the divestment package as requested by the OFT decision of 4
February 2008 on this case. The draft undertakings can be viewed on the Office
of Fair Trading's website at www.oft.gov.uk.
