Changes to the UK competition regime – how will they affect my deal?

15 May 2013
Mayer Brown Legal Update
The Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Act 2013 (the Act), enacted on 25 April 2013, will make changes to the process of assessing mergers, acquisitions and corporate joint ventures (“mergers”) when it comes into force in April 2014. It will not alter the turnover and share of supply thresholds that establish whether a deal qualifies for review; nor will it affect the test used to decide whether to block or clear a deal – this will continue to depend on whether the deal concerned will result in a substantial lessening of competition in any market.
