Trying to figure out if you need to make an HSR filing? Is your company currently considering an asset acquisition? A merger or other voting securities acquisition? Or another type of transaction like the acquisition of a limited liability company or formation of a joint venture?
To help navigate the complex HSR Act rules in order to determine if a filing is actually required for your merger or acquisition transaction, Mayer Brown has created an interactive presentation that provides quick and practical HSR guidance. Based on current (2015) FTC thresholds, this presentation allows you to choose the criteria that best applies to your organization or transaction and then takes you through a basic analysis of whether an HSR Act filing is necessary. The FTC’s Federal Register notice, and a complete list of all HSR threshold adjustments, can be found at: http://www.ftc.gov/news-events/press-releases/2015/01/ftc-announces-new-thresholds-clayton-act-antitrust-reviews-2015.
