Competition authority introduces fast-track merger procedure
Ecuador | 25 June 2020

The Superintendency for Market Power Control (SCPM) recently published a resolution which established a fast-track merger control procedure and introduced the so-called 'failing firm' defence. The new procedure has been long overdue and is a welcome development, especially as it makes Ecuador an advantageous M&A venue and will save time and money for the SCPM and undertakings that meet the application requirements.
