On 1 August 2011, Swedish Svenska Cellulosa Aktiebolaget (SCA), a global hygiene and paper company, announced the acquisition of a 95% stake in Turkish hygiene products company San Saglik, producer of incontinence care products, from the family-owned MT Group. The purchase consideration corresponds to SEK 95 million (approx. US$15.2 million) on a debt-free basis.

The concept of a single continuous infringement (" SCI ") enables competition authorities to consider a series of agreements or conducts that have the same objective to distort competition in the market as one single continuous infringement. Similar to the approach in the European Union, the Turkish Competition Authority ( Authority ) also considers this concept while assessing a case under Article 4 of Law No 4054 on the Protection of Competition of 13 December 1994 ( Law No 4054 ), which is akin to-if not the same as-Article 101 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union ( TFEU ).
The Data Protection Law came into force on April 7 2016. It applies to:
Ministry of Economy determines certain minimum thresholds for certain products in order to force the exporters to pay higher taxes on the products in customs. In this respect, the Ministry determines the minimum value threshold per each kilogram of the imported product and sets forth that any exports into Turkey that does not meet this minimum value threshold shall be required to obtain a surveillance certificate from the Ministry. This is mainly implemented for tax purposes and to protect the local producers in Turkey. Based on new precedent, it is now possible to reclaim such overpaid tax and expenses.

Our discussion below is based on the context of a share deal.
