Euroinfo, 2017, vol. 1, issue 1, 23-29
This article aims to synthetically present the implications of the European Commission recent decision in the case of WhatsApp acquisition by the Facebook, highlighting the consequences for the EU merger control policy. The analysis undertaken is based on the synthetic presentation of the current mergers regulations and guidelines and also on the most relevant studies from the literature in the field. The presentation of EU merger control regulation will be exemplified by the latest European statistics (the EU Report on Competition Policy) related to the results of this common policy at EU level. In the final part of our research we will present some conclusions regarding the impact of the Facebook decision for merger control in the EU.
