The U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has issued the annual revisions 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 the revisions are published in the Federal Register, which should occur this week. Once they become effective, the new thresholds will apply to transactions consummated on or after the effective date. The HSR Act requires the FTC to revise the thresholds annually based on changes in the gross national product.
