2011 Revised (Higher) Hart-Scott-Rodino Act Thresholds
By J. HART HOLDEN
The annual revised jurisdictional and filing fee thresholds under the HartScottRodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended (the HSR Act), have been announced by the Federal Trade Commission (the FTC). 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 24, 2011, and will apply to all covered transactions that close on or after that date.
