[BILLING CODE 6750-01]
FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION
REVISED JURISDICTIONAL THRESHOLDS FOR
AGENCY: Federal Trade Commission
SUMMARY: The Federal Trade Commission announces the revised thresholds for interlocking directorates required by the 1990 amendment of Section 8 of the Clayton Act. Section 8 prohibits, with certain exceptions, one person from serving as a director or officer of two competing corporations if two thresholds are met. Competitor corporations are covered by Section 8 if each one has capital, surplus, and undivided profits aggregating more than $10,000,000, with the exception that no corporation is covered if the competitive sales of either corporation are less than $1,000,000. Section 8(a)(5) requires the Federal Trade Commission to revise those thresholds annually, based on the change in gross national product. The new thresholds, which take effect immediately, are $18,142,000 for Section 8(a)(1), and $1,814,200 for Section 8(a)(2)(A).
