JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – SHORT-term insurance distributor, Collision and Management Centre (CMC), is concerned a proposed major between Hollard and two other companies could drive it out of business.
The mergers concern Hollard and the Regent Group as well as Hollard and MotoVantage.

To address the issue, the Competition Tribunal has granted CMC conditional leave to intervene in the proposed mergers.
In terms of public interest matters the CMC is entitled to attend pre-hearing conferences; provide oral and documentary evidence during the proceedings; cross-examine witnesses led by the Competition Commission and the merger parties and present argument during the proceedings.
The Competition Commission prohibited the merger with regent but parties have disputed the ruling.
