Hart-Scott-Rodino Act Thresholds Decrease

The Federal Trade Commission ("FTC") recently announced revisions to the Hart-Scott-Rodino ("HSR") Act filing thresholds. The HSR Act requires annual adjustment of the jurisdictional thresholds based on the change in the U.S. gross national product. For the first time since the annual adjustments to the thresholds have been in effect, the thresholds will decrease from the prior year.
