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.
