AFREF submitted a comment supporting the Federal Trade Commission’s proposed rule to require complex companies including private equity firms to disclose more information about their holdings and business lines when pursuing mergers and acquisitions. These improved disclosures are needed for antitrust agencies to more fully understand the potential anticompetitive impacts of mergers involving sprawling business empires in order to prevent increased economic consolidation that harms consumers, workers, and communities.
