The Federal Trade Commission has raised the thresholds governing premerger notification filings that must be made under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended (HSR, or the Act). Effective February 24, transactions valued above $66 million will require HSR notification when they meet the other requirements of the HSR Act. This is an increase from the previous threshold of $63.4 million. The filing thresholds for larger transactions have been adjusted as well. The old $126.9 million threshold has been increased to $131.9 million, and the old $634.4 million threshold has been increased to $659.5 million.
Under the new thresholds, the filing fee for notifiable transactions valued above $66 million but less than $131.9 million remains at $45,000. Transactions valued above $131.9 million but below $659.5 million will require a filing fee of $125,000. Transactions valued above $659.5 million will require a filing fee of $280,000.
