Bingo Industries Limited’s (ASX: BIN) shares climbed up 0.45 percent today (i.e., 3 December 2018), and it’s the third consecutive day on which the Company’s shares have raised. From 29 November 2018 onwards, the shares of the company are inching up following its ASX release in which it acknowledged the concerns raised by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) on its proposed acquisition of Dial A Dump Industries.
Bingo’s CEO Mr. Daniel Tartak has stated that the management of the company does not agree with the preliminary competition concerns which are raised in the ACCC’s Statement of Issues (SOI). ACCC is of the view that the acquisition of Dial A Dump Industries by Bingo could substantially decrease the competition in the Greater Sydney market which may lead to higher gate fees. However, as per the management of the company their acquisition of Dial A Dump Industries will not have much effect in the Greater Sydney market and they have provided data which is supported by several industry-leading experts to ACCC. ACCC is currently investigating the vertical integration issues, and it will take its final decision on 21 February 2019.
Bingo which is a publicly listed waste management company will become the B&D waste collector and processor after the acquisition of Dial A Dump, and further it will also become the owner of a substantial amount of dry landfill capacity in Sydney. ACCC is currently investigating the vertical integration issues.
