Possible Merger Threshold Reform in the EU

Detta är en Master-uppsats från Lunds universitet/Juridiska institutionen

Sammanfattning: This thesis discusses the jurisdictional test used in the European Merger Regulation no. 139/2004 which is a threshold test. This threshold test is based on the turnover of the merging parties and the geographical location of said turnover. According to the Commission there is a possible legal gap when it comes to mergers and acquisitions of undertakings that don’t have a large enough turnover to fall under the current thresholds but might still have large market power. One suggested change is to the current threshold criteria found in the European Merger Regulation no. 139/2004. This thesis discusses the current turnover threshold criteria and whether changes should be made to it and by doing so widen the jurisdiction of the Commission.
