Hart-Scott-Rodino Reporting Requirements: A 2016 Update

Eastern Time


In June 2016 the Federal Trade Commission announced that the maximum civil penalty for violation of the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act was increasing more than two-fold, to $40,000 per day. In July, an investment company agreed to a record-breaking $11 million civil penalty for violation of the HSR Act. Many other multi-million dollar fines have been imposed in recent years on companies and individuals that failed to recognize when an HSR notification was required or failed to report correctly. The HSR Act, which requires pre-notification of certain acquisitions and mergers, is complex and its application requires a careful analysis.

In a two-hour LIVE Webcast, a panel of thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group will discuss current Hart-Scott-Rodino Reporting Requirements. Speakers will also provide a roadmap through the HSR reporting process and any government investigation that may follow.

Key topics include:

  • The Hart-Scott-Rodino Act—An Overview
  • HSR Threshold and 2016 Filing Requirements
  • Key Issues and Common Violations
  • Legal Challenges and Remedies
  • Possible Civil Penalties
  • Best Compliance Practices
