Hart Scott Rodino Antitrust Threshold Revisions Announced for 2011


The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) announced new Hart-Scott-Rodino Act (HSR) thresholds for reporting proposed transactions to the Department of Justice (DOJ) and FTC, on January 21, 2011. The critical "size-of-transaction" threshold will increase from $63.4 million to $66.0 million, when the changes take effect, 30 days after publication in the Federal Register, which should occur shortly.

The HSR Act allows the FTC and DOJ to review proposed mergers and acquisitions before they are consummated to determine if they may violate antitrust law. The thresholds are adjusted annually for changes in GNP.
