Thresholds Decreased From 2009
On January 19, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) announced the 2010 revised jurisdictional thresholds under the HSR Act, which will become effective in late February 2010. The FTC revises the thresholds annually based on changes in the gross national product from the previous year. The 2010 thresholds decreased from 2009 due to the economic downturn in the U.S.
