Penalty notice

7 September 2020: The CMA has imposed penalties of 25,000 and 30,000 on Amazon for the failure to provide, without reasonable excuse, complete responses to two sets of statutory information requests. These failures resulted in 189 documents, which included a significant amount of information relevant to the CMAs Phase 2 Amazon/Deliveroo merger investigation, being produced after the initial deadline. These penalties, each of which is subject to the statutory maximum of 30,000, have been imposed under section 110 of the Enterprise Act 2002.

Although Amazon did ultimately provide all of the information required, the CMA considers that Amazons behaviour caused unnecessary delays to the CMAs investigation, with some documents being provided almost two months late within the course of a six-month investigation.

Final report

4 August 2020: The CMA has cleared the anticipated acquisition by Amazon of certain rights and a minority shareholding in Deliveroo.
