Merger Meets Another Hurwitz

James D. Hurwitz, research fellow for The American Antitrust Institute, recently released a white paper on the Ticketmaster Entertainment / Live Nation merger. Any guess as to which way the Antitrust Institute leaned on the matter? Maybe its name says it all.

“There appear to be no structural or conduct remedies that would prevent the serious harm likely to result from the transaction, other than prohibiting its consummation,” Hurwitz determined in the 58-page opinion.

The commentary includes a heavy dose of background material that the industry knows well, but for those interested, the paper can be downloaded here.
