Stats of the Day: #12

About one in five of UK merger cases to date have involved analysis of local market catchment areas..

The proportion of these cases that are subject to merger remedies at Phase 1 or reference to an in-depth Phase 2 investigation has been

50% higher

….than for cases not involving local analysis.

If your merger involves local markets it is worth knowing what has happened in the 88 CMA local market cases so far.
