Mergers & Acquisition Analysis

Using rigorous, theory-based analysis and advanced econometric techniques, Edgeworth experts analyze competition issues for merger reviews.

Edgeworth experts have wide-ranging experience in handling merger cases and assessing the potential competitive impacts resulting from mergers and acquisitions. We are recognized for our expertise in the economic analysis of mergers and have been invited to speak on merger analysis by the Federal Trade Commission, the Department of Justice, China’s Ministry of Commerce, the Directorate General for Competition of the European Union, and the Japan Fair Trade Commission.

Our work has included:

  • Preparing and analyzing data for filings in numerous jurisdictions within the United States, Europe, and China
  • Analysis of anticompetitive allegations such as hostile bids
  • Analysis of coordinated effects
  • Analysis of unilateral competitive effects
  • Estimation of potential merger efficiencies
  • Analysis and case studies on entry conditions

Our economists bring their unparalleled expertise in data preparation and econometric analysis to merger simulation and second request responses in a variety of industries, including computer hardware, shipping, consumer products, agriculture, and paper related industries. Representative matters include the Seagate acquisition of Samsung’s hard drive division, for which Edgeworth’s work was selected as the 2012 Matter of the Year by Global Competition Review
