GE/Alstom merger: MAPP takes part in the analysis of bidding data and in the assessment of the competitive impact

On 8 September 2015, after a long process that included pre-notification discussions and an in-depth (Phase II) investigation, the European Commission cleared GE's acquisition of Alstom's power generation and transmission assets, subject to conditions.

MAPP took part in the assessment of the competitive impact of the transaction on behalf of Alstom. MAPP's work included detailed analyses of bidding data, which were discussed in numerous meetings with the team of the Chief Competition Economist.
