The FTC concluded that the report therefore largely confirmed the effectiveness of its existing practices for designing and implementing merger remedies. Although the FTC does not intend to significantly alter its current merger remedies policies, the study provides valuable insight into the FTC’s perspective for companies considering transactions that may require a divestiture.
