National Retail Tenants Association - What Happens When the FTC Calls: An Antitrust Primer for Retailers Focused on Pending Mall Consolidation

March 23, 2010 • Webinar

Many retailers are talking about what Simon Property Group’s proposed acquisitions of Prime and General Growth Properties will mean for their tenancy costs. And they are even more concerned about interacting with the Federal Trade Commission because they are unfamiliar with how the FTC analyzes such transactions, both substantively and procedurally. This webinar will explain the FTC merger review process, covering the basics of how the FTC gathers information and the role of customer views in the FTC’s antitrust analysis. Experienced antitrust counsel will provide guidance on the substantive issues the FTC will be focusing on, and the significance of the retailer’s input in the FTC’s decision making.

Greg Call is the Moderator and Rob Lipstein and Randy Smith are panelists.
