FTC Announces Changes to HSR Rules and Form

Recently, the Federal Trade Commission announced significant revisions to the Premerger Notification Form and the Rules governing the HSR form that become effective on August 18th. As noted in this Sullivan & Cromwell memo, although the revisions eliminate some of the information currently required by the HSR form, taken as a whole, these changes will add significantly to the time and expense of preparing an HSR form for many filing parties.
