Mergers remove a competitor from the marketplace. Evaluating the competitive effects of a merger requires economic and econometric analysis to assess the:


-- antitrust market(s) occupied by the merging parties;


-- degree of substitutability between the merging parties' offerings;


-- change in concentration and market power that will result; and


-- potential remedies if antitrust authorities object.
