Dow-DuPont’s High Shares in Crop Seeds: AAI’s Diana Moss Tells Reuters Why a Merger Would Be Problematic

Diana Moss was quoted in the March 27, 2017 Reuters story Asset sales plan secures EU backing for US$130 billion Dow, DuPont merger.

The EU approval may be a sign that U.S. regulators would follow suit because the agencies have traditionally coordinated on reviews and remedies for large multinational mergers, said Diana Moss, president of the American Antitrust Institute non-profit group.

 “In the U.S., there are very high shares in corn and soybean seeds. We would expect those problems to be significant enough for enforcers in the U.S. to remedy them,” Moss said.
