(Reuters) – Britain’s competition regulator said on Tuesday it was possible that the $44 billion purchase of London-based IHS Markit Ltd by information provider peer S&P Global (NYSE:SPGI) could lead to a significant reduction of competition in the country.

The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) also said it would clear the merger if competition concerns in certain commodity price assessments were addressed.
