Revised 2017 Jurisdictional Thresholds Under the HSR Act
Client Memorandum

Created date


Yesterday, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) announced revised Hart-Scott-Rodino Act (HSR) reporting thresholds under which transactions will be reportable only if, as a result of such transaction, the acquiring person will hold voting securities, assets, or non-corporate interests valued above $80.8 million, compared to $78.2 million in 2016.

The newly adjusted HSR thresholds will apply to all transactions that close on or after the effective date, which is expected to be in late-February (the exact date will depend on when the changes are published in the Federal Register).
