Answer ... As noted in question 8, the Competition Authority has recently investigated several transactions which fell below the thresholds at which a notification would have been mandatory. It is therefore worth seriously considering whether to submit a notification where the parties’ turnover falls below the mandatory thresholds but, for example, market shares are high.

Pre-notification discussions will help to ensure a smooth clearance process. To avoid any hold-ups in the timetable, it is important to ensure that the notification is complete.
