New AMC thresholds will become effective starting from 18 May 2016

On 18 March 2016, the Law of Ukraine "On Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts on Ensuring Effective Control Over Economic Concentrations" No. 935-VIII was published, which means it will be effective in two months. Among other things, this law increases the merger notification thresholds pursuant to which economic concentrations require pre-transaction clearance from the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine.

Therefore, starting from 18 May 2016, the new notification thresholds will be applicable.

For more information about the new notification thresholds, please refer to our earlier alert.

If you would like to receive further information or require assistance in connection with the above, please contact Rob Shantz, Dmytro Fedoruk, Natalia Gerus or Yulia Eismont.
