  • On January 21, 2011, the Federal Trade Commission approved changes to the Hart- Scott-Rodino (HSR) premerger filing thresholds. The HSR Act requires parties to transactions which meet certain size thresholds to make a premerger notification filing with the Federal Trade Commission and the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice. Generally, filings are required when transactions meet both a size-of-transaction threshold and a size-of-person threshold.
