Transactions can close after the applicable waiting period expires. At the same time, the Commissioner can apply to Court to seek remedies for a year after closing. Where the Commissioner does seek a remedy, he can also apply for interim relief until a hearing can take place. Merging parties are often faced with this these critical questions: do we close? can we close? on what terms?

The body of case law on this topic has been expanding and has included Superior Propane, Labatt , RJR Macdonald, CBC, Parkland and now the Secure Energy decisions from this past summer.

Join this panel of experts as they explore the critical new role of the efficiencies defense, the scope of SIRs and section 11 orders, when section 100 and 104 apply, and the implications for closing and for all merger reviews.
