Handling Merger Investigations

Series IV Mergers

Module IV-1:  "Handling Merger Investigations" 

This module addresses competition agency merger investigation, drawing upon concepts from the modules on market definition and market power in the merger context. The video uses a hypothetical merger to demonstrate the practical techniques agencies use to investigate a merger, including how to plan a merger investigation and how to obtain and evaluate relevant evidence.

Downloadable format is the same as interactive, but allows the reader to download the module to a local computer, which reduces uploading delays. You Tube format includes the same substantive content as other formats, but lacks the interactive features. Viewers are encouraged to use the format that works best for them.
