Copenhagen Economics provide key contribution to successful agrifood merger in Baltics.
Copenhagen Economics provide key contribution to agri-food merger in Baltics

The Copenhagen Economics mergers team provided economic analysis for the successful merger clearance in Latvia and Lithuania for Linas Agro Group's acquisition of Kauno grüdai AB.

According to Partner Marius Juonys from Ellex – Baltic circle of legal excellence: “I would guess that in terms of the scope of analysis and investigation, this was probably the largest concentration in Lithuanian history which required the most effort from all the parties involved. The Competition Council carried out an in-depth analysis of numerous markets and their segments, in some cases at a very granular level."

According to Managing Economist Mindaugas Cerpickis: "This case shows that analysis of economic data using econometrics and other techniques has become decisive in the outcome of large-scale competition investigations in the Baltics".
