A red light from the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC) is not necessarily fatal when it comes to seeking approval for mergers but red light Statement of Issues (SOI) are becoming harder than ever before to resolve, according to Johnson Winter & Slattery’s latest report on recent trends in complex merger review cases by the ACCC.
