Acquisition of Hard Disk Drive Business
May 7, 2012
Edgeworth economists worked on behalf of Samsung to assess potential anticompetitive effects of Seagate’s acquisition of Samsung hard disk drive business. Edgeworth’s work product was provided to the antitrust agencies in the U.S., Europe, China, and Japan. The acquisition was completed in December 2011. Edgeworth economists:
- Worked with the client to collect and prepare large electronic datasets and economic information for antitrust agencies; and
- Constructed analyses on potential anticompetitive effects of the deal.
Dr. Parker Normann and Edgeworth Economics were selected by Global Competition Review as the 2012 Matter of the Year.
