New Merger Review Thresholds

The Federal Trade Commission announced on January 24, 2012 that they have revised the thresholds for Clayton Act Antitrust Reviews.  The press release is available here.

For 2012, the threshold for reporting proposed mergers and acquisitions subject to enforcement under Section 7 of the Clayton Act increased from $66.0 million to $68.2 million.

These changes are relevant to anyone who makes Hart-Scott-Rodino (HSR) filings.  If you want to read the text of the Federal Register Notice, the PDF file is available here.
