On January 21, 2016, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) announced the 2016 revised jurisdictional thresholds under the HSR Act, which will become effective in February 2016. The FTC revises the thresholds annually based on changes in the gross national product from the previous year.

The 2016 thresholds are increased from the thresholds last year. For example, the size of transaction threshold for reporting proposed mergers and acquisitions under the HSR Act is increasing from $76.3 million to $78.2 million. A summary of the new thresholds is noted below.
