Merger Review Process Initiative

Merger Review Process Initiative

This graph shows the percentage of Antitrust Division investigations resulting in second requests, from FY2000 to FY2006.

  • 2000-2001: 40.3%
  • Merger Review Process Initiative Announced in 2001
  • 2002-2003: 28%
  • 2004-2005: 24%
  • 2006: 22.1%

More effective use of the HSR waiting period has enabled the Division to conclude more investigations without issuing second requests.
