30 August 2000Practising Law Institute, Corp. Law and Practice Handbook
This article discusses in general terms the circumstances under which investment funds might have to file a Hart-Scott-Rodino (“HSR”) notification report and observe a waiting period before making certain investments. By necessity this memorandum is very general and is not a substitute for consulting HSR counsel on a transaction-by-transaction basis. Part I describes the HSR Act and the three threshold tests for reportability. Part II describes certain exemptions that are commonly applicable to venture fund investments.
