Shares in supermarket chain Sainsbury’s (LON:SBRY) have plunged 15.56% to 243.10p (as of 12:15 GMT) after the CMA said the proposed ASDA merger would lead to a substantial lessening of competition in UK markets. The Competition and Market Authority’s published proposal indicates that prohibition of the merger is their current preferred remedy.
