FTC Issues New HSR Thresholds


Today the Federal Trade Commission released its annual revisions to the jurisdictional and filing fee thresholds applicable under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976 (the “HSR Act”). The dollar thresholds of the HSR Act and Rules are indexed on an annual basis, based on changes in the U.S. gross national product. As a result of these changes, the size-of-transaction threshold will increase from $56.7 million to $59.8 million. In addition, the size-of-parties thresholds, the filing fee thresholds and the thresholds applicable to certain exemptions will also increase. These revisions will become effective thirty days after their publication in the Federal Register.
