The Hart-Scott-Rodino Act (“HSR”) requires that transactions over a certain value be reported to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and U.S. Department of Justice Antitrust Division at least 30 days prior to closing. That reporting threshold is adjusted annually. Effective February 20, 2015, the new threshold to keep in mind is $76.3 million (up from $75.9 million in 2014). You should consult with antitrust counsel if you are acquiring or selling voting securities, non-corporate interests in a business (such as interests in an LLC or partnership), or assets valued over $76.3 million.
