Merger Update

Office of Fair Trading
19 May 2004


Anticipated acquisition by GE Real Estate of Benchmark Group PLC

The Office of Fair Trading is considering whether arrangements are in progress
or in contemplation which, if carried into effect, will result in the creation
of a relevant merger situation under the merger provisions of the Enterprise Act
2002.  Should it be found to be a relevant merger situation, the OFT will
further consider whether the creation of that situation may be expected to
result in a substantial lessening of competition within any market or markets in
the United Kingdom for goods or services that warrants reference to the
Competition Commission for investigation and report.

Affected Sector: Real estate development.

Please send written representations about any competition or public interest
issues to:

Mr Darrell Channing

Office of Fair Trading
