Every year, the dollar thresholds under the HSR Act are adjusted for changes in the gross national product. The new thresholds will take effect 30 days after they are published in the Federal Register. At that time, we will revise this post to give the effective date.

Most importantly, the size-of-transaction threshold will increase from the current $75.9 million to $76.3 million, so that once effective, acquisitions of voting stock or assets valued at more than $76.3 million may be reportable.
