Small Business Majority Submits Comment Regarding FTC and DOJ on Draft Merger Guidelines

Friday, September 15, 2023

Today, John Arensmeyer, Founder and CEO, submitted a comment to the Federal Register on The Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Trade Commission's (FTC) joint 2023 Draft Merger Guidelines. Robust market competition is essential to a thriving small business ecosystem. A level playing field can boost healthy competition between small and large businesses. This promotes more competitive prices and business terms, as small firms are regularly buying from and selling to larger companies. These merger guidelines must uphold competition in order to support the small business ecosystem.
