David’s client was making a strategic acquisition to help expand their business. Antitrust issues were threatening to delay the deal for weeks or months, with the possibility of millions of dollars in added expense. David developed a plan of action with the antitrust group at McGrath North, and together they were able to obtain antitrust clearance, allowing the transaction to close on schedule and under budget.

Stated simply, many community banks find themselves at a strategic crossroads. They may be presently large enough to thrive in the present environment. They may need to grow (either organically or through acquisition) to a size which enables them to operate efficiently and profitably. Alternatively, they may need to prepare to sell.
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) recently released the revised thresholds used in determining whether parties to certain acquisition transactions are required to comply with the requirements of the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976 (HSR Act). The thresholds are revised on an annual basis by the FTC to reflect changes in the gross national product. The revised thresholds will become effective on February 11, 2013.
