The following Competition practice note produced in partnership with Primerio Ltd provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
A conversation with Andreas Stargard and Gilbert Noel, lawyers at African law firm Pr1merio, on key issues on merger control on the merger control regime in the Economic and Monetary Community of Central Africa (CEMAC).
CEMAC is comprised of six Member States–Cameroon, Chad, the Central African Republic, the Republic of Congo, Equatorial Guinea and Gabon.
NOTE–to see whether notification thresholds in CEMAC and throughout the world are met, see Where to Notify.
The CEMAC merger control regime was governed by CEMAC Regulation of 1999, but has since been replaced by Regulation N. 06/19-UEAC-639-CM-33 of 7 April 2019 (the Regulation). Mergers which are notifiable must first be approved by the Commission de la CEMAC (Commission) before it may be implemented. CEMAC regulates mergers of legal entities which are based in the CEMAC region.
Article 5 of the Regulation provides that a merger (a concentration) will take place when:
two or more companies which were previously independent merge, or
when one or more companies acquire directly or indirectly, whether by equity participation, contract or any other means, control of the whole or part of one or more other companies.
The merger review process focuses on mergers which involve legal entities registered and based in the CEMAC region.
