Knowles’ Acquisition of NXP
Nov 20, 2012
Drs. Fei Deng and Gregory K. Leonard worked on behalf of Knowles Electronics, LLC, a subsidiary of Dover Corporation, to assess the potential anticompetitive effects of its acquisition of the Sound Solutions business of NXP Semiconductors N.V. The only jurisdiction in which the deal triggered antitrust review was China, in front of the Anti-Monopoly Bureau of MOFCOM. Dr. Deng and Dr. Leonard:
- Worked with counsel in their submissions of answers to MOFCOM’s questions
- Prepared a report that assessed the relevant market, evaluated the likelihood and sufficiency of entry, and analyzed the potential competitive effects of the deal
The merger was cleared by MOFCOM without any restriction.
