Family Law Fact: What is a merger?

A merger occurs where pre-existing companies are combined, which results in the creation a of single new company. Typically, the merging companies are equal or similar in terms of their existing size and scale of operations. The newly merged company tends to assume a new company name and operates under new management.

It is important to note that, despite often being used as interchangeable terms, mergers and acquisitions are two distinct restructuring processes. A merger involves separate companies joining forces to establish a new joint company. In contrast, an acquisition involves a financially stronger company taking over a smaller, financially weaker, company.

Mergers in the UK are subject to the legislation contained within the Enterprise Act 2002. Alongside this, the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) is the regulatory body that controls and scrutinises mergers, in order to prevent mergers from unfairly restricting competition. For example, in 2019, the CMA blocked the proposed merger of the UK supermarket giants, Asda and Sainsburys, over fears that reduced competition would result in higher prices for consumers.

Types of merger

There are several types of merger that exist, each of which is dictated by the relationship between the merging companies, and the reasons they wish to merge. The five most common types of merger are:

  • Horizontal merger: companies in direct competition with each other that provide the same goods or services to consumers. Two competing UK supermarkets would fall into this category.

  • Vertical merger: companies that serve different functions in the supply chain of the same goods or services. For instance, a car manufacturer and a car parts supplier.

  • Congeneric merger: companies that serve the same customer base but provide different types of goods or services. A bank and an insurance company agreeing to merge would be a prime example of this.
