    An oligopoly is when business work together to create a price for goods. A consolidation is when two businesses merge.

    If a business that assembles action-figure toys bought a company that marketed and distributed those toys, that would be vertical consolidation. If a clothing store bought another clothing store, that would be horizontal consolidation.

    So yes, horizontal consolidation. If they doubled their customers, the second company was performing about as well as them.
