Alive or Dead?: Common Ownership, Coordinated Effects, and Behavioral Remedies
12 PM EST
Please join the Mergers and Acquisitions Committee for a panel that explores whether topics are “alive” (hot and on the up), or “dead” (cold and losing momentum):
• Common Ownership – New theories worry that ownership of multiple competing firms may present antitrust concerns. Is this worry real and growing?
• Coordinated Effects – The FTC successfully blocked the Tronox/Cristal merger in December 2018 on the basis of a coordinated effects theory. Does this success mark a return of these theories?
• Behavioral Remedies – A number of recent closely-watched mergers have been cleared with behavioral – rather than structural – remedies, such as the Northrop/Orbital ATK and Lahey-Beth Israel.
