  • The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has adopted new Hart-Scott-Rodino (HSR) premerger filing threshold amounts. Annual adjustments based on the change in gross national product are required by the 2000 amendments to the HSR Act. This year's increase becomes effective 30 days after publication in the Federal Register or February 28, 2008. Transactions that will close on or after February 28, 2008, may rely on the revised rules.
