SSE plc (SSE) welcomes the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA)'s publication of its Final Report following the inquiry into the proposed merger of SSE Energy Services, SSE's household energy and services business in GB, and Innogy SE (innogy)'s GB retail business, npower Ltd.

Commenting on the publication, Alistair Phillips-Davies, Chief Executive of SSE plc, said:

"We are very pleased that the Final Report of the CMA's investigation confirms its provisional findings that the proposed merger of SSE Energy Services and npower does not raise any competition concerns.

"This is a complex transaction and there is still much work to do in the coming weeks and months. However, we've always believed that the creation of a new, independent energy and services retailer has potential to deliver real benefits for customers and the market as a whole and it is good to see that the CMA has cleared the transaction following what was a comprehensive and rigorous inquiry."
