Mergers and Acquisitions
Mergers and Acquisitions are methods by which companies legally unify ownership of assets formerly subject to separate controls. Mergers and acquisitions are regulated principally by the Maltese Companies Act under the Title “Amalgamation of Companies”. The act distinguishes between two types of amalgamation namely, merger by acquisition and merger by the formation of a new company. Merger control is then regulated by Control of Concentrations Regulations issued under the Maltese Competition Act.
