Google Business Listing - Merged details with another business

I had a google business listing that was created in 2011.  A company at the same address then created a listing some time later.  I know that my listing was verified via postcard but I'm not sure the other company had their address verified.  At some point, information such as names, telephone numbers and customer reviews seem to have become merged and only one listing existed which merged the details from each of the two companies.  I have read that there was a 'merge and purge' algorithm used by google and was wondering if it was still active or if the algorithm could have effected the change on my listing between 2011 and now?
