Excerpt from "Almunia: Phase II a certainty for cement deal", by Katy Oglethorpe:
Cal Goldman, at Goodmans in Toronto and former Commissioner of the Canadian Competition Bureau, the parties have been sensible to put forward divestments early, as this is all part of facilitating a smooth and consistent review process.
“One of the objectives of any counsel working on a trans-border deal is to avoid ever seeing another GE Honeywell, where one major jurisdiction come out one way and another in a diametrically opposite manner,” he says. “Proactively offering divestments to all agencies can be a sensible way to expedite the review process and minimise surprises.”
