The U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has announced annual adjustments to the jurisdictional thresholds for the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976 (HSR Act). The new thresholds will come into effect near the end of February, 30 days after publication in the Federal Register, which should occur within about a week. Once effective, the new thresholds will apply to transactions consummated on or after the effective date. The HSR Act requires the FTC to adjust the thresholds annually based on changes in the gross national product (GNP) in the prior fiscal year.
