FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION
[Dkt. 9243]


R.R. Donnelley & Sons Co., et al.; Prohibited Trade Practices and 
Affirmative Corrective Actions

AGENCY: Federal Trade Commission.

ACTION: Final order.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This final order dismisses charges against R.R. Donnelley & 
Sons Co. in connection with Donnelley's 1990 acquisition of Meredith/
Burda Company L.P., on the grounds that the product market for 
analyzing the effects of the acquisition is not as narrow as alleged 
and that anticompetitive effects are unlikely. This action reverses the 
initial decision of the Commission's Administrative Law Judge and 
nullifies his order that Donnelley divest various printing plants.

DATES: Complaint issued October 11, 1990. Final order issued July 21, 
1995.\1\

Commission, Final Order, and Commissioner Azcuenaga's statement are
