According to the report, the FTC is conducting an extensive review of the deal. Senator Warren stated her concerns regarding the deal.
She commented, “I have serious concerns about the Amazon-iRobot deal — dominant companies like Amazon shouldn’t be allowed to just buy their way out of competing. The FTC should oppose this proposed merger to protect competition, lower consumer prices, and rein in Amazon’s well-documented anticompetitive activities.”
