The Groupe Bernard Hayot (GBH) announced that it had signed an agreement to acquire the company Vindémia, which comprises the subsidiaries of the Casino group (Jumbo, Score, Vival, etc.) in La Réunion, Mayotte, Madagascar and Mauritius.

Although no notification of the deal has yet been submitted to the Autorité, the deal must be examined by the Autorité de la concurrence under merger control rules.

In anticipation, and because of the size of the deal which, in terms of turnover, is the largest merger or acquisition ever to be examined by the Autorité in the overseas territories, the Autorité will travel to the location at the start of November 2019 to interview the economic operators and stakeholders affected by this take-over.
