Filing thresholds under the Hart-Scott-Rodino (HSR) Act increased February 2013 to reflect growth in GNP. Many transactions valued over $70.9 million now have to be notified to federal antitrust authorities.
The HSR Act requires parties to file notification with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and Department of Justice (DOJ) when a proposed transaction—such as a merger, joint venture, stock or asset acquisition, or exclusive license—meets specified thresholds and no exemptions apply. If notification is required, the transaction cannot close while the statutory waiting period runs and the agencies review the transaction.
