Experienced Binghamton M&A Attorney
Merger and acquisitions are mainly governed by federal law and reviewed by the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) before being consummated. Section 7 of the Clayton Act grants these government agencies the legal authority to review mergers, set the rules on how the parties report their M&A transactions to the government and how the mergers or acquisitions are evaluated. Section 7 of the Clayton Act prohibits mergers and acquisitions that may substantially lessen competition or potentially create a monopoly.
The Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976 (HSR) grants the DOJ and FTC the authority to evaluate the reporting of mergers and acquisitions. Under the HSR Act the merging parties cannot acquire voting securities or assets without first filing a Pre-merger Notification and Report Form (typically, if the M&A transaction meets specific size-of-person and size-of-transaction tests), and they have to wait until the appropriate waiting period expires (30 days – 15 days for cash tender offers). The HSR Act also has rules on how the parties report M&A transactions under the framework of the Horizontal Merger Guidelines, which provides rules on how mergers are evaluated for potential anti-competitive effect, product market, geographic market, market concentration, entry analysis and other factors.
A local Binghamton merger and acquisitions attorney should be consulted to ensure that the required M&A requirements are examined and included.
