Remedy Study

In January 2015, the FTC commenced a study of the effectiveness of the Commission’s orders in merger cases where it required a divestiture or other remedy.  The study was intended to update and expand on the divestiture study the FTC issued in 1999.  The study, which was cleared by the Office of Management and Budget on August 12, 2015, focused on 90 merger orders issued by the Commission between 2006 and 2012. A report on the study was released in January 2017.
