Mergers PDF Print

The Fair Competition Act CAP 326C (Act), at Section 20 states, that mergers which are likely to result in the control of forty (40) or more percent of any market in Barbados are prohibited unless permitted by the Commission. This provision requires the Commission to investigate all mergers that meet this threshold with a view to granting or denying permission to the parties. In seeking to administer its responsibility under this section of the Act this page has been designed to provide guidance to businesses, their advisers and the general public in understanding the goals, objectives and processes for merger regulation in Barbados.
