HSR Filing Thresholds and New Reporting Requirements for Foreign Investments in U.S. Entities
Client Memorandum

Created date


Companies contemplating U.S. acquisitions or with existing U.S. investments should be aware of two recent regulatory developments involving notifications to U.S. authorities. The Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) has published a notice to revise the premerger notification thresholds for mergers and acquisitions under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended (“HSR Act”). In a separate development, the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis has reinstated rules requiring U.S. entities that are 10% owned by foreign persons to file reports following the closing of new investments.
