Hart-Scott-Rodino Act Revised Jurisdictional Thresholds

Effective February 28, 2018, the premerger reporting thresholds under the HSR Act have been revised, as they are annually, based on the change in gross national product. The minimum size of the transaction has been raised to $84.4 million (from $80.8 million). The size-of-person test now will apply to transactions valued at $337.6 million or less (up from $323 million). For acquisitions that are subject to the size-of-person test, the “$10 million” person must now be a $16.9 million person and the “$100 million” person must now be a $168.8 million person. More details are available in S&C’s client memo.
