NZME says Fairfax NZ merger on track

AAP logoAAP 1/08/2016

APN News and Media's former New Zealand business is confident of getting permission to merge with Fairfax New Zealand, insisting the country's competition watchdog hasn't received any arguments that could derail the deal.

The Commerce Commission has published all submissions on the proposed merger and could extend its August 22 deadline to rule on whether to allow it.

"NZME has seen nothing in the submissions filed by interested parties that undermine the key arguments made in its original application," NZME said in a statement.
