Oligopolistic Competition – Mergers and Acquisitions

Mergers and Acquisitions (M & A) is a common strategy used by companies to develop a sustainable competitive advantage and provide long term profits. Horizontal merger and acquisition strategies are frequently used to increase market share in a specific market segment.

 

 

Velasquez (2018) introduces us to a variety of anticompetitive strategies that oligopoly companies can use to gain an unfair competitive advantage often resulting in unfairly destroying smaller companies and injuring society. Those include: price-fixing, manipulation of supply, market allocation, bid rigging, exclusive dealing arrangements, tying arrangements, retail price maintenance agreements, predatory price discrimination, bribery, etc.
