Steps

  1. Start with the Merger Notification cells. If this value is greater than 0, subtract 1 from it. -1 is not an acceptable value.
  2. Next, add-up all of the other cells, but exclude any defenses from this calculation.
  • Defenses include all efficiency defenses, as well as the efficiency and public interest (pro D) defenses under Merger Assessment.
  • Include Other as a defense.
  • Public interest (pro authority) is not a defense, and should count positively towards the overall Scope Index.
