Summary

These guidelines provide guidance on the Executive Order on Notification of Mergers and on
Merger Fees.

The forms to be used for a full and respectively a simplified merger notification are attached
as Annexes to the Executive Order on Notification of Mergers. The Competition and Consumer
Authority’s assessment of mergers will be expedited if the notifying parties submit the information
on the undertaking’s name, address, telephone number, e-mail address as well as the
information as to contact persons of the competitors, customers and suppliers referred to in
the notification, in an electronic format. Accordingly, the Competition and Consumer Authority
recommends that the notifying party submits the above mentioned information in an Excel
sheet. For further information about this, please refer to the last page of these guidelines.

For guidance in general about the Competition and Consumer Authority’s assessment of merger
notifications, please refer to the Competition and Consumer Authority’s merger guidelines
(Merger Guidelines). These guidelines inter alia provide information about the benefits of prenotification
contact to the Competition and Consumer Authority well in advance of the notification
as well as information about the possibility that the Competition and Consumer Authority
may approve a merger according to the simplified procedure; cf. Section 12 c(7) of the
Competition Act.
