The US Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) has revised and, once again, raised the thresholds for the Hart Scott Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended (the “HSR Act”). The HSR Act may require that parties to proposed stock or asset acquisitions exceeding certain thresholds file premerger notification reports to the FTC and the Antitrust Division of the US Department of Justice and then observe statutorily prescribed waiting periods (usually 30 days) prior to closing the transaction. The new HSR Act thresholds were published in the Federal Register on January 26, 2017 and will go into effect on February 27, 2017.
