Example text

Such a horizontal merger can reduce the L barriers faced by an R of the merged firm below those it would have faced by creating a merged firm that (1) faces retaliation-related law-related costs that are higher than the retaliation-related law-related costs its antecedents would have faced and (2) had higher OCAs, NOMs, and COMs and defenses that are more-widely spread, which will increase the harm-inflicted to loss-incurred ratio the R would face in relation to its retaliation against the merged firm’s retaliation against the R’s investing.

More detailed explanations can be found in Chaps. 2 and 10. 877 877 Some explanation is required. I will start by assuming that the R that was third-placed from supply any buyer the MPs were respectively best-placed and second-placed (or were uniquelyequal-best-placed) to supply pre merger will be second-placed to supply that buyer post-merger. , would equal its marginal costs minus the amount by which it was worse-placed than the best-placed MP (MPs) to supply the buyer in question while its price to its own customers would equal its marginal costs plus the OCAs it enjoyed in its relations with them plus the NOM þ COM it obtained from them.
