  • Effective February 17, 2006, the minimum transaction value triggering a Hart-Scott-Rodino filing will increase from $53.1 million to $56.7 million based on changes in the United States Gross National Product, as required by the 2001 amendments. This change is the second such indexing under the 2001 amendments. In a separate announcement, the Federal Trade Commission issued a revised Hart-Scott-Rodino Form, changing the base year for revenue reporting from 1997 to 2002.
