HSR Filing Threshold Increases to $75.9 Million

January 21, 2014

The Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) announced on January 17, 2014 that the dollar-based thresholds applicable to the Hart-Scott-Rodino (“HSR”) premerger notification program will be raised 7 percent from the 2012 levels. As a result, the HSR minimum size of transaction threshold will be raised to $75.9 million from $70.9 million. Transactions valued above $70.9 million but below $75.9 million will no longer require an HSR filing. The dollar thresholds that determine the applicable filing fee will be revised accordingly.
