HSR Pre-Merger Reporting Threshold Increased to $101 Million

Date: 01/25/22

The Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) announced its annual revision to the thresholds for premerger reporting of proposed acquisitions to the United States antitrust authorities under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended (the “HSR Act”). Effective February 23, 2022, the minimum size-of-transaction threshold will increase to $101 million. The FTC and the U.S. Department of Justice (“DOJ” and, together with the FTC, the “agencies”) have not yet reinstated their practice of granting early termination of the 30-day waiting period under the HSR Act.
