Early Termination Notices under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act
Any person filing an HSR form may request that the waiting period be terminated before the statutory period expires. Such a request for "early termination" will be granted only after compliance with the rules and if both the Federal Trade Commission and Department of Justice Antitrust Division have completed their review and determined not to take any enforcement action during the waiting period. In some instances, after a Request for Additional Information and Documentary Material has been issued, the investigating agency will determine that no further action is necessary and terminate the waiting period before full compliance with the Second Request is made. Because the FTC administers the HSR Program, all early terminations, regardless of which agency reviews a transaction, are listed here.
The Early Termination Notices are listed in "reverse chronological" order, latest notice first. Note: Starting June 2003, all files linked are in PDF format.
