    Rejection of combination between Uni-president and Weilih

    By Stephen C. Wu / Yvonne Y. Hsieh (The article reflects only the authors' opinion and does not represent the opinion of Lee and Li.)

("Uni-President") and Weilih Food Company ("Weilih") by which Uni-President would indirectly acquire more than half of the shares in Weilih. This is the second time the FTC rejected the proposed combination between Uni-President and Weilih. The FTC rejected the combination because the economic benefits to the overall market or consumers arising from the combination were not clear and might not materialize eventually. Therefore, the FTC could not conclude that the overall economic benefit of the merger would outweigh the disadvantages resulting from the competition restraints.
