The Competition and Consumer Commission of Singapore announces a proposed infringement decision for substantial lessening of competition in the market of ride-hailing platform services (Grab / Uber)

1 STAR RATING: SINGAPORE REGULATOR FLAGS UNWINDING OF GRAB/UBER MERGER* On 5 July 2018, the Competition and Consumer Commission of Singapore (CCCS) announced that it had issued a proposed infringement decision against Grab Inc (Grab) and Uber Technologies, Inc (Uber) in relation to the sale of Uber’s Southeast Asian business to Grab. The decision follows the CCCS’ provisional finding that the sale led to a substantial lessening of competition in the market for ride-hailing platform services in Singapore (or “chauffeured point-to-point transport (CPPT) platform services”). The CCCS’s announcement is of interest as it is one of the few recent instances of a competition regulator flagging the possibility of ‘unwinding’ an allegedly anti-competitive merger post-completion.
