Archived — Merger Interpretation Guidelines for consultation

OTTAWA, April 11, 2012 — The Competition Bureau today published Pre-Merger Notification Interpretation Guideline Number 15: Assets in Canada and Gross Revenues from Sales in, from or into Canada (Sections 109 and 110 of the Act) for consultation.

Interpretation Guideline 15 provides guidance on how to calculate the aggregate value of assets in Canada and the gross revenues from sales in, from or into Canada. It also provides information on how to determine whether gross revenues from sales are generated from assets in Canada. This guidance may assist businesses in determining whether the parties-size and transaction-size thresholds under sections 109 and 110 of the Act are exceeded.
