MIND WHAT YOU SUBMIT – €110 MILLION FINE FOR SUBMITTING MISLEADING INFORMATION DURING A MERGER NOTIFICATION

The recent case of Fcebook shaking up data from Whatsapp  is a clear example of a breach following a violation of the EUMR(Merger Revulation), tackling the 1% of the joint turnover of bot companies.
