  • The Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) has announced its annual revisions to the dollar jurisdictional thresholds in Section 7A of the Clayton Act and the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended (“HSR Act”). The revised thresholds will become effective 30 days after the date of their publication in the Federal Register. These changes increase the dollar thresholds necessary to trigger the HSR Act’s premerger notification reporting requirements. The FTC also increased the thresholds for interlocking directorates under Section 8 of the Clayton Act.
