  • The Federal Trade Commission recently announced new rules that significantly affect a company's notification obligations for acquisitions subject to the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended (or "HSR Act"). Significantly, the new rules raise the thresholds which trigger an HSR filing and apply the HSR Act to investments in and the formation of unincorporated entities. Additionally, the new rules make certain other changes to correct several unintended loopholes and inequities contained in the current rules.
