Key HSR Filing Threshold Will Increase To $63.1 Million As Of Feb. 28


The Federal Trade Commission recently revised the jurisdictional and filing fee thresholds of 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 the recent changes, the size-of-transaction threshold will increase from $59.8 million to $63.1 million. In addition, the size-of-party thresholds, the filing fee thresholds and the thresholds applicable to certain exemptions to the HSR Act will also increase. These revisions will become effective on February 28, 2008.
