The Danish Competition Authorities’ Assessment of Minority Shareholdings and Cross-ownership between Competitors

Group 7 Created with Sketch.
Download PDF version

The Danish Competition Authority has recently published an article regarding cross-ownership of companies in Denmark, which illustrates the Danish Competition Authority’s continued focus on the effects of cross-ownership and its adverse effects on competition on the market. The article refers to empirical studies made in the US which show that horizontal cross-ownership in specified industries has caused significantly increased prices for the consumers and a diminished range of products on the relevant market. Although the possible competitional challenges caused by cross-ownership is recognized, the Danish Competition Authority does not recommend any changes to the existing regulation.
