Merger Review of Major Packaging Entities
Edgeworth Partner Dr. Parker M. Normann was the lead economist for a merger creating one of the world’s largest packaging entities. Dr. Normann and a team from Edgeworth rapidly responded to numerous issues related to potential competitive effects and filings in Canada, as well as other jurisdictions around the world. In response to Competition Bureau and other agency concerns, the team analyzed relevant markets, supply responses, available capacity, and per-unit margins. The combination was cleared by the Competition Bureau, as well as all other agencies, without significant delay.
