The Treatment of Efficiencies in Merger Review: An International Comparison

This study has been prepared at the request of the Government of Canada in order to inform discussions related to the proper consideration of efficiencies in merger review in Canada. The immediate purpose of the report is to review and contrast the approaches taken by competition agencies and courts in a number of jurisdictions with respect to the principles and methods they apply in reviewing mergers that promise significant efficiencies at the same time as they threaten—to at least some degree—competition.
