Tougher Anti-trust Regulations for M&A Deals
Since the Obama administration took office it has been noted that scrutiny of major M&A deals has become a lot tougher and more restrictive.

These changes come after a series of deals were let through by the Bush administration that came under fire, like the merging of Sirius and XM Radio as well as Whirlpool Corp and Maytag.
