In the present context of the European Single Market and the globalization among economies, mergers and acquisitions represent the means by which companies increase their competitional capacity. Real economical facts outline that traders performing activities in a competitional economical environment enforce the improvement of business relationships under the aspects of production and retail. Under such conditions, companies resort to mergers and acquisitions from economical, financial and fiscal reasons aiming to concentrate the production agents involved in the accomplishment and diversification of economic activities. At a global scale, it is observed an amplification of the mergers and acquisitions which purpose is to increase the competitional capacity, to enter on a new retail market, to increase the economical performance by optimization of production and distribution conditions. As a result, regulations regarding the control of mergers and acquisitions propose the creation of a balanced legal framework to stimulate the free initiative of the traders, and in the same time to retribute the actions which could affect free competition on the common market.
