FTC adjusts the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act thresholds, raising the minimum size for reportable acquisitions to US$90 million.
On February 15, 2019, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) 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 in mid-March (30 days after the date of publication in the Federal Register), and will affect all transactions closing on or after the effective date.
