DOJ and FTC Launch Public Inquiry into Serial Acquisitions

On March 23, 2024, the Justice Department Antitrust Division (DOJ) and Federal Trade Commission (FTC) jointly issued a Request for Information (RFI) on serial acquisitions and roll-up strategies, a consolidation strategy often used by private equity firms. The RFI seeks information from “any sector or industry in the U.S. economy, including, but not limited to, housing, agriculture, defense, cybersecurity, distribution, construction, aftermarket/repair, and professional services markets.  The RFI is intended to complement the federal government’s investigation into healthcare competition.

The public has 60 days to submit comments to the RFI, meaning until July 22, 2024. According to the RFI, public comments will inform FTC and DOJ enforcement priorities and future actions.
