Minority Interest Investments: EC Guidance and a Comparative Perspective.
12 PM EDT
Minority investments historically have been thought to raise fewer issues from an antitrust law perspective than an acquisition of control of an entity. Minority investments are also associated with unique competitive theories of harm. This panel will feature the European Commission’s new white paper regarding the treatment of minority interest investments in merger review and discuss the related theories of harm, the manner in which these theories have been translated into practice in various jurisdictions, and the evolving approach in certain jurisdictions.
