forcing industries to restructure. This restructuring is often accomplished through mergers and acquisitions. Third, both cross-border mergers and mergers between domestic firms engaged in international trade pose challenges for competition policy. See Beladi, Chakrabarti, and Marjit (2010) ; Beladi, Chakrabarti, and Marjit (2013 ). There has been a concurrent renewal of interest in horizontal mergers in markets characterized by product differentiation. See Farrell and Shapiro (2010) . How do exogenous changes in the degree of product differentiation affect the

degree of product differentiation, and therefore stronger downstream market power. 2 The Model An incumbent I $I$ and an entrant E $E$ compete in prices for final consumers, who buy a product or subscribe to a service from either of the two firms. A consumer θ $\theta $ who buys from firm i ∈ { I , E } $i \in \{I, E\} $ derives utility u i = θ s i − p i ${u_i} = \theta {s_i} - {p_i}$ , where s i ${s_i}$ and p i ${p_i}$ are the quality and the downstream price set by firm i $i$ , respectively. Parameter θ $\theta $ represents the consumer’s preference

devoted to sports shows may be highly-valued by sports-loving consumers but under-valued by other consumers. When more niche products are offered, we say there is more product variety and thus more product differentiation. That is, we presume that there is more differentiation among niche products than among broad products. The approach we take to model product differentiation is rather general. It provides an easy way to capture the situation where different designs result in distributional differences without imposing particular correlation between them. In a separate

technology reduced costs for microloan providers by lowering monitoring expenses. While in general, microloans require high transaction costs relative to loan size, innovations such as mobile phone banking have lowered costs, allowing for greater profitability. 3 The increased heterogeneity in firm type and lending technology theoretically may benefit consumers in two ways. First, product differentiation should better meet particular preferences, drawing new customers into the market. In terms of loan type, for example, consumers unwilling to take out small group loans
