Notice: Market Concentration Metrics-MSA Response to Stakeholder Feedback (pdf)

To: Market Participants

As part of its general monitoring activities the MSA released a report on November 1, 2006 entitled ‘Market Concentration Metrics’.  A number of stakeholders provided feedback on the report.  This feedback was posted on the MSA website in Notices dated December 14, 20 and 21. 

In this notice the MSA is providing a preliminary response to the feedback received to date.  As part of an ongoing dialogue the MSA is hoping to meet with those participants who gave feedback in order to explore the issues raised more fully.  The MSA is still open to receiving feedback on this issue from other Stakeholders.  The MSA is still expecting to update the analysis in the market concentration metrics report in the first half of 2007.  If you have comments or questions, feel free to call Mike Nozdryn-Plotnicki               (403) 705-8503         (403) 705-8503 (Email: mike.nozdryn-plotnicki@albertamsa.ca) or Matt Ayres               (403) 705-3182         (403) 705-3182 (Email: matt.ayres@albertamsa.ca).
