Granting of Request for Early Termination of the Waiting Period Under the Premerger Notification Rules, 1533-1535 [07-81]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 8 / Friday, January 12, 2007 / Notices statistics from the effective date of the rulemaking, the amendment appears to have had a de minimis effect on the number of filings received and thereby has not impacted PRA burden. 2. Electronic submission of premerger notification filings.5 Since the effective date of this rulemaking only one electronic submission has been made. FTC staff anticipates that as the business community becomes more familiar with the new submission process more persons will choose to e-file and that such persons will experience a one hour reduction in burden (the estimated time to print or make copies of the documents when filing the traditional way). However, due to the low volume of electronic filings, the availability of the e-filing system currently has a de minimis effect on burden and the FTC conservatively declines to reduce its burden estimate at this time. 3. Allowing Internet links to be used for responses to Items 4(a) and (b) of the Notification and Report Form.6 Staff projects that 50 percent of non-index filings will utilize this alternative method of providing financial data, resulting in a reduction in burden of one hour per non-index filing. Finally, since staff last obtained OMB approval, the switch of the base year from 1997 to 2002 became effective.7 Arguably there is some burden involved in changing the revenue numbers from 1997 to 2002 for the base year. However, this data is reported by large companies to the U.S. Census Bureau every five years in the ordinary course of business and, thus, the FTC is not required to account for such burden under the PRA.8 Furthermore, based on staff’s informal consultations with industry, staff anticipates that any increase in burden would be offset by a reduction in burden because recent revenue data is generally more easily retrievable by and readily available to reporting persons than older data. Nonetheless, although it appears a reduction in burden may be warranted, staff conservatively declines to make an adjustment to its previous burden estimate on this basis. There were 3,510 non-index filings and 48 index filings in fiscal year 2006. 5 71 FR 35995 (June 23, 2006). FR 73369 (December 12, 2005). 7 The switch of the base year from 1997 to 2002 became effective December 30, 2005. 70 FR 77312 (December 30, 2005). 8 See 5 CFR 1320.3(b)(2). Staff recognizes that the HSR Rules require companies to report total revenues for a specific NAICS code (whereas, the Census Bureau collects data for a specific NAICS code for each establishment). Nonetheless, staff anticipates that the burden tied to the aggregation of such data as required by the HSR Rules is de minimis. rmajette on PROD1PC67 with NOTICES 6 70 VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:41 Jan 11, 2007 Jkt 211001 Based on an average increase of 13% in fiscal year 2004—fiscal year 2006 in the number of non-index filings, staff projects a total of 3,966 non-index filings for fiscal year 2007. Likewise based on an average decrease of 34% in index filings over the same time period, staff projects a total of 32 index filings for fiscal year 2007. Retaining the FTC’s previous assumptions, staff estimates that non-index filings require approximately 39 burden hours per filing and index filings require an average of 2 hours per filing. Finally, staff continues to estimate that approximately 91 transactions will require an additional 40 hours of burden due to the need for a more precise valuation of transactions that are near a filing fee threshold.9 Thus, the total estimated hours burden before adjustment is 158,378 hours [(3,966 non-index filings × 39 hours) + (32 index filings × 2 hours) + (91 acquiring person non-index filings requiring more precise valuation × 40 hours)]. Adjusting for the reduced burden due to incorporating Item 4(a) and Item 4(b) documents by reference to an Internet link reduces the total burden by 1,983 hours (3,966 non-index filings × .5 = 1,983 × 1 hour = 1,983 hours), resulting in total burden for fiscal year 2007 of 156,395 hours. This is a conservative estimate. In estimating PRA burden, staff considered ‘‘the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency.’’ 5 CFR 1320.3(b)(1). This includes ‘‘developing, acquiring, installing, and utilizing technology and systems for the purpose of disclosing and providing information.’’ 5 CFR 1320.3(b)(1)(iv). Although not expressly stated in the OMB regulation implementing the PRA, the definition of burden arguably includes upgrading and maintaining computer and other systems used to comply with a rule’s requirements. Conversely, to the extent that these systems are used in the ordinary course of business independent of the Rule, their associated upkeep would fall outside the realm of PRA ‘‘burden.’’ Industry has been subject to the basic provisions of the HSR Rules since 1978. Thus, businesses have had several years (and some have had decades) to integrate compliance systems into their 9 The FTC retains its previous estimate that 4.6% of non-index filings for acquiring persons will require a more precise valuation. Using staff’s projections for fiscal year 2007, 91 transactions will undergo a more precise valuation process [(3,966 non-index filings / 2) = 1,983 (number of non-index filings for acquiring persons) × 4.6%]. PO 00000 Frm 00048 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 1533 business procedures. Accordingly, most companies now maintain records and provide updated order information of the kind required by the HSR Rules in their ordinary course of business. Nevertheless, staff conservatively assumes that the time devoted to compliance with the Rule by existing and new companies remains unchanged from its preceding estimate. Estimated labor costs: $73,506,000 (rounded to the nearest thousand). Using the burden hours estimated above and applying an estimated average of $470/hour for executive and attorney wages,10 staff estimates that the total labor cost associated with the HSR Rules and the Notification and Report Form is approximately $73,505,650 (156,395 hours x $470/hour). Estimated annual non-labor cost burden: $0 or minimal. The applicable requirements impose minimal start-up costs, as businesses subject to the HSR Rules generally have or obtain necessary equipment for other business purposes. Staff believes that the above requirements necessitate ongoing, regular training so that covered entities stay current and have a clear understanding of federal mandates, but that this would be a small portion of and subsumed within the ordinary training that employees receive apart from that associated with the information collected under the HSR Rules and the corresponding Notification and Report Form.
