AAI Files Comments With the FTC Endorsing Proposed Remedies Study, Offers Suggestions for Expanding Scope

The AAI filed comments with the Federal Trade Commission in response to the agency’s proposal to update and expand their mid-1990s study of merger remedies. The proposal comes at a time when the effects of years of consolidation in key sectors and the effectiveness of merger remedies is coming under close scrutiny. Among other suggestions, AAI’s comments note the importance of expanding the study period and scope of remedies studied, and potentially coordinating with the DOJ.
