The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) recently released the annual adjustments to the transaction thresholds under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976 (HSR Act), which increased the minimum dollar threshold for premerger reporting. To realign with the changes in the gross national product, the new minimum transaction threshold has now increased to $101 million. The FTC and the Department of Justice (DOJ) Antitrust Division also continue their commitment to streamline and strengthen antitrust enforcement by revising the merger guidelines.
To avoid a hefty amount of civil penalties, parties involved in mergers and acquisitions must be well-versed in the latest regulatory developments and proactively review their reporting obligations to ensure compliance.
In this CLE Webcast, antitrust practitioners Thomas Dyer (Lewis Brisbois Bisgaard & Smith LLP) and Nathan Garg (Winston & Strawn LLP) will provide the audience with a comprehensive discussion of the latest developments in HSR threshold adjustments, reportability, and enforcement trends. The distinguished speakers will also share practical strategies for mitigating antitrust risks.

- The Revised HSR Thresholds
- HSR Increased Threshold: What It Means to the Business
