2012 Revised (Higher) Hart-Scott-Rodino Act Thresholds
By J. HART HOLDEN
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has announced its 2012 jurisdictional and filing fee thresholds under the HartScottRodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended (the HSR Act). Due to an increase in gross national product over the past government fiscal year, the new thresholds have also increased. The increased thresholds will become effective on February 27, 2012, and will apply to all covered transactions filed on or after that date.
