The Malaysia Competition Commission (MyCC) has announced that it is reviewing amendments to the Competition Act 2010 including the introduction of a merger control regime in Malaysia. “Merger control” is a concept under competition law where regulators review mergers and acquisitions transactions as well as joint venture arrangements to determine if such transactions or arrangements will give rise to competition concerns.

To steer businesses through the upcoming merger control regime in Malaysia, Rahmat Lim & Partners will be publishing a series of articles that discuss general procedures involved in merger filing notifications, the impact of filing notifications on transaction timelines and remedial options, both behavioural and structural, for parties. This article is the first in this series of articles seeking to discuss merger controls, as well as the general process involved and the alternatives available to parties to successfully close their transactions.
