Hart-Scott-Rodino (HSR) Act

This law requires M&A-related notification and filing with the Federal Trade Commission. While the focus of the HSR Act is on reviewing the antitrust implications of large M&A deals, it also applies to any acquisition of voting stock over specified yearly thresholds. The law can therefore apply to executives and directors with stock and option grants valued at more than the threshold amount ($92 million in 2021).

For details on the application of the HSR Act to stock grants, see a memo from the law firm Cooley.
