Mixed bundling in merger control

Art. 102 TFEU, merger

Many Article 102 TFEU cases have shown that the analysis of exclusionary behaviour is tricky - even after the conduct has taken place. The analysis of conglomerate effects such as tying and bundling in merger control is even more challenging: it requires analysing the potential harm from an ex ante perspective. This note considers the question of anti-competitive effects of mixed bundling in a merger of two regional newspapers as an example. It shows a simple technique based on advertising expenditure data that identifies a limited set of potentially harmed competitors.

Is self-supply in the relevant market?
E.CA Compact
2011
self supply, market share

Vertically integrated firms supply upstream goods to their own downstream units (self-supply). At the same time non-integrated upstream firms may supply the upstream good to independent down-stream firms (third party sales). Should only third party sales constitute the market when calculating market share thresholds in State aid control, or should self-supply also be considered? This note shows that the presence of self-supply may significantly reduce the downward pressure on prices that can result from a State aid-induced output expansion. If so, self-supply should be considered in market definition.
