Michal Halperin, M-RCBG Senior Fellow and former head of the Israeli Competition Authority, will discuss the growth of big-tech through mergers and acquisitions and how this trend should influence merger analysis in pending and future transactions. The discussion will cover the challenges facing antitrust and competition authorities when they need to investigate mergers in the technological markets. We will discuss in detail recent acquisitions such as the acquisition of Fitbit by Google, the acquisition of Giphy by Facebook and the $68 billion acquisition of Activision Blizzard by Microsoft now being investigated by the FTC.
