HORIZONTAL MERGER: The consolidation under a single ownership of two separately-owned businesses in the same industry.

A horizontal merger should be contrasted with vertical merger--two firms in different stages of the production of one good, such that the output of one business is the input of the other; and conglomerate merger--two firms in totally, completely separate industries.
