Taken literally, these results suggest that concentration can make a difference of approximately fifty basis points. 18, noted in the guidelines as the beginning of the range considered "highly concentrated" and in which mergers are subject to stiffer approval standards. The decline in rates registered at the highest levels of concentration is surprising and will be examined in a different context below.
