HSR Filing Threshold Increases to $76.3 Million

January 15, 2015

The U.S. Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) announced on January 15, 2015 that the dollar-based thresholds applicable to the Hart-Scott-Rodino (“HSR”) premerger notification program will be raised less than one percent from the 2014 levels. As a result, the HSR minimum size of transaction threshold will be raised to $76.3 million from $75.9 million. Transactions valued above the old threshold of $75.9 million but below the new $76.3 million threshold will no longer require an HSR filing. The dollar thresholds that determine the applicable filing fee will also be revised accordingly.
