Britain's competition watchdog clears Informa-UBM deal

(Reuters) - Britain’s Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) said on Thursday that Informa’s (INF.L) 5.6 billion pound ($7.45 billion) takeover of rival UBM (UBM.L) did not qualify for an investigation.

The deal, announced in December, will create a global leader in business events and conferences, almost a decade after UBM tried to buy Informa.
