The FTC has announced new notification thresholds under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended (“HSR Act” or the “Act”), which will be effective as of February 20, 2015. The current thresholds continue to apply to all transactions closed prior to the effective date. Of particular note, the initial threshold for notification under the HSR Act will increase slightly from $75.9 million to $76.3 million.
