Meanwhile, the Competition and Markets Authority has imposed a ‘hold separate’ as part of an investigation into the merger, requiring the Just Eat and Takeaway.com businesses to continue to be run independently and under separate management until the probe has concluded.

Jitse Groen, CEO of Just Eat Takeaway.com: “Today’s listing on the London Stock Exchange marks the beginning of a new era for our company. The Just Eat Takeaway.com merger provides the scale that is a necessary condition to remain competitive in a globalised environment. Our ambitions, however, reach much further. It is our intent to lead the sector, which not only means delivering the absolute best product for both consumers and restaurants, but also a dedication to our social responsibility.

“Following the CMA’s discretionary decision to conduct an investigation into the merger, we will work quickly to respond to their questions. As said, we are confident merger clearance will be obtained.”
