ASX Sharemarket News

In ASX sharemarket news, Amcor Limited (ASX: AMC) has received antitrust clearance from the Brazilian Administrative Council for Economic Defense (CADE) for the merger with Bemis.

The transaction is still subject to regulatory approval in the United States, but they are in advanced discussions with the US Department of Justice (DOJ), which includes the potential for required remedies.

Collective potential remedies, including European Commission remedies, would represent an “immaterial proportion” of total sales for the combined company and would not impact the US$180 million of net cost synergies expected to be delivered by the end of the third year following completion.

Domino’s Pizza Enterprises Ltd. (ASX: DMP) shares could come under scrutiny today after the pizza mogul business announced yesterday it had acquired Domino’s in Denmark for €2.5 million.

However, the Australian Financial Review has run a story that some of stores, when they were open, had workers that were relabelling food to extend its shelf life. There were also stories of rats being in some of the Domino’s outlets.

The ASX-listed Domino’s was not responsible for the above problems, but it shows the Denmark Domino’s wasn’t a quality business and it will have to work hard to improve the reputation in the country.

Shares of Crown are still higher than the pre-Wynn price, so the share price could be one of the larger movers today – higher or lower.
