Share Post

The Brewers Association (BA) submitted comments to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) concerning the agency’s revised draft Merger Guidelines. In the comments, the BA applauds the general direction of the revised guidelines and believes that if coupled with more rigorous enforcement by federal competition (antitrust) authorities, the policies reflected in the revised guidelines will help give small and independent businesses more opportunities to thrive in an economy that has experienced too much consolidation over the past decades.
