Economic Analysis of Partial Acquisitions, JVs, and Alliances
12 PM EDT
Like full mergers, business combinations such as partial acquisitions and joint ventures can enhance efficiency and increase output, but they also can change the parties’ incentives in ways that harm competition. Using recent real-world examples from the oil & gas and airline industries—including recent pipeline deals and airline joint ventures—an expert panel will discuss the economic tools used to analyze these business combinations. They will explain how lawyers can leverage economic tools such as the modified HHI, modified GUPPI, and quality of service index (QSI) analysis, in making arguments to regulators in support of their transactions. The panelists also will describe how regulators use these tools and discuss ways to address potential concerns.
