Notice Re: Final Process - Market Share Offer Control Process

NOTICE TO MARKET PARTICIPANTS

Re: Final Process– Market Share Offer Control Process

On July 13, 2009 the MSA notified stakeholders that it had commenced a stakeholder consultation process in relation to the requirements set out under Section 5 of the Fair, Efficient and Open Competition Regulation (“Regulation”).  At that time the MSA published a ‘Strawdog’ draft upon which interested parties were invited to provide comment.  On August 11, 2009 the MSA published a Draft Process and invited further comment.

Having considered the comments received from stakeholders, the MSA is now publishing a final version of the Process as well as a formal response to the comments on the Draft Process (Appendix A to this Notice).

Final Process

Appendix A

This step completes the Stakeholder consultation on the Market Share Offer Control Process.  The final Process will be placed under the ‘Processes’ section of the MSA website.

We appreciate your participation in these matters.

Yours truly,

“Original signed”
