For the first time since the enactment of the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended (the HSR Act), the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) announced on January 19, 2010 that it will decrease the jurisdictional thresholds applicable under the HSR Act. The FTC revises the thresholds annually, based on changes in the gross national product. The new thresholds will be effective 30 days after their publication in the Federal Register. The decrease will result in more reportable transactions under the HSR Act.

Please see full alert below for more information.
