Having defined cognizable efficiencies, the revisions next address the issue of how these cognizable efficiencies will be taken into account in the competitive effects analysis. The Czech Republic case is similar to the Slovenian one, except that it involves an insurance company rather than an automotive enterprise. This paper also shows the influence the Guidelines have had winning judicial acceptance of the importance of efficiencies in determining whether a merger is likely substantially to lessen competition.
