The Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) announced the most recent annual revision to the thresholds for the premerger reporting of proposed acquisitions to United States antitrust authorities under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvement Act of 1976, as amended (the “HSR Act”), which will be increased effective February 24, 2014. Pursuant to amendments to the HSR Act adopted in 2000, the thresholds are adjusted annually, based on the change in gross national product. The minimum size-of-transaction threshold will be $75.9 million.
