### Description

The decay of a $B_{s}^{0}$ meson to two oppositely charged $D_{s}$ mesons is one that is postulated to be almost exclusively CP even. Measuring the properties of this decay can therefore give important information about the behaviour of the $B_{s}^{0}$ system. This presentation will focus on the measurement of the inclusive branching fraction of $B_{s}^{0} \rightarrow D_s^{(\ast)+} D_s^{(\ast)-}$, and will also consider other measurements made at LHCb using the same decay.
