The Federal Trade Commission will consider seeking disgorgement of "ill-gotten gains" even in cases involving closed mergers, said Deborah Feinstein, director of the FTC's Bureau of Competition, during a recent speech in New York regarding the agency's approach toward merger review. Given the FTC's more frequent use of the disgorgement remedies in recent years, this is a potentially important acknowledgement and one that the business community should watch closely.

In 1914, Congress passed the FTC Act, creating the Federal Trade Commission. Section 5 of the FTC Act declared "unfair methods of competition in or affecting commerce" to be unlawful and gave the FTC enforcement power over such "unfair methods." Over 100 years later, that key language in Section 5 underlying the agency's competition-related powers had never been the subject of any formal FTC guidance. Clearly, "unfair methods of competition" include Sherman and Clayton Act violations, and some argue that Section 5 reaches beyond those statutes. But exactly what kind of additional conduct falls within the FTC's Section 5 powers has been a long-unsettled question.
