The Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) has announced new monetary thresholds for the Hart-Scott-Rodino (“HSR”) Act effective February 22, 2010. See 75 Fed. Reg. 3468 (Jan. 21, 2010). The new thresholds will be approximately 3% lower than those currently in effect. For example, the minimum “size-of-transaction” threshold, which must be met for the HSR Act to require any filing, will decrease from $65.2 million (2009 threshold) to $63.4 million (new 2010 threshold).
