FTC adjusts the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act size thresholds, inter alia, to raise the minimum size for reportable acquisitions to $80.8 million.
On January 19, 2017, the Federal Trade Commission announced new jurisdictional thresholds for the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976 (HSR Act). The FTC is required to adjust the thresholds annually, based on the change in gross national product. These increases will take effect 30 days after the date of publication in the Federal Register. The new thresholds should be effective in late February and will affect all transactions closing on or after the effective date.
