Conclusion Section XII.A of the proposed Final Judgment states: mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Unless such transaction is otherwise subject to the reporting and waiting period requirements of the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended, 15 U.S.C. 18a (the ‘‘HSR Act’’), ABI, without providing at least sixty (60) calendar days advance notification to the United States, shall not directly or indirectly acquire or license a Covered Interest in or from a Covered Entity; provided, however, that advance notification shall not be required for acquisitions of the type addressed in 16 CFR 802.1 and 802.9. As defined in Section II.I of the proposed Final Judgment, a Covered Interest ‘‘means any non-ABI Beer brewing assets or any non-ABI Beer brand assets of, or any interest in (including any financial, security, loan, equity, intellectual property, or management interest), a Covered Entity; except that a Covered Interest shall not include (i) a Beer brewery or Beer brand located outside the United States that does not generate at least $7.5 million in annual gross revenue from Beer sold for resale in the United States; or (ii) a license to distribute a non-ABI Beer brand where said distribution license does not generate at least $3 million in annual gross revenue in the United States.’’ As defined in Section II.H of the proposed Final Judgment, a Covered Entity ‘‘means any Beer brewer, importer, or brand owner (other than ABI) that derives more than $7.5 million in annual gross revenue from Beer sold for further resale in the United States, or from license fees generated by such Beer sales.’’ Accordingly, if by acquiring a beer distributor, (1) ABI were to acquire a license to distribute a non-ABI beer brand from a brewer, importer, or brand owner that derives more than $7.5 million in annual gross revenue from beer sales (sold for further resale) in the United States, and (2) the license to distribute the non-ABI beer brand generates at least $3 million in actual gross revenue in the United States, ABI will have acquired a Covered Interest in a Covered Entity, thus triggering the notice provisions of Section XII. The Department notes that Commenter National Beer Wholesalers Association has requested that the Department provide its requested clarification in this response to public comments and has not requested that the proposed Final Judgment be modified in any respect. The Department agrees that modification of the proposed Final Judgment is unnecessary. VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:49 Sep 23, 2013 Jkt 229001 DEPARTMENT OF LABOR After reviewing the public comments, the United States continues to believe that the proposed Final Judgment, as drafted, provides an effective and appropriate remedy for the antitrust violations alleged in the Complaint, and is therefore in the public interest. The United States will move this Court to enter the proposed Final Judgment after it has posted all public comments and this response on the Antitrust Division Web site and published in the Federal Register this response and the Web site address at which the public comments will be posted.

See 33 U.S.C. 932. Each authorized insurance carrier or carrier seeking authorization is required to establish annually that its Longshore Act obligations are fully secured through an applicable state guaranty or analogous fund, a deposit of security with the Division of Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation (DLHWC), or a combination of both. Similarly, each authorized self-insurer or employer seeking authorization is required fully to secure its Longshore Act obligations by depositing security with the DLHWC. These requirements are designed to assure the prompt and continued payment of compensation and other benefits by the responsible carrier or self-insurer to injured workers and their survivors. Forms associated with this information collection (Forms LS–275 IC, Agreement and Undertaking (Insurance Carrier); LS–275 SI, Agreement and Undertaking (SelfInsured Employer); and LS–276, Application for Security Deposit Determination) obtain information used to determine appropriate security deposit amounts and to insure compliance with the security deposit requirements. This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection under Control Number 1240–0005.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Longshore and Harbor Workers' 
Compensation Act requires a covered employer to secure the payment of 
compensation under the Act and its extensions by purchasing insurance 
from a carrier authorized by the Secretary of Labor to write Longshore 
Act insurance, or by becoming an authorized self-insured employer. See 
33 U.S.C. 932. Each authorized insurance carrier or carrier seeking 
authorization is required to establish annually that its Longshore Act 
obligations are fully secured through an applicable state guaranty or 
analogous fund, a deposit of security with the Division of Longshore 
and Harbor Workers' Compensation (DLHWC), or a combination of both. 
Similarly, each authorized self-insurer or employer seeking 
authorization is required fully to secure its Longshore Act obligations 
by depositing security with the DLHWC. These requirements are designed 
to assure the prompt and continued payment of compensation and other 
benefits by the responsible carrier or self-insurer to injured workers 
and their survivors. Forms associated with this information collection 
(Forms LS-275 IC, Agreement and Undertaking (Insurance Carrier); LS-275 
SI, Agreement and Undertaking (Self-Insured Employer); and LS-276, 
Application for Security Deposit Determination) obtain information used 
to determine appropriate security deposit amounts and to insure 
compliance with the security deposit requirements.
    This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency 
generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and 
the public is generally not required to respond to an information 
collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays 
a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any 
other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to 
penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that 
does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 
1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection 
under Control Number 1240-0005.
    OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3) 
years without renewal, and the current approval for this collection is 
scheduled to expire on November 30, 2013. The DOL seeks to extend PRA 
authorization for this information collection for three (3) more years, 
without any change to existing requirements. It should also be noted 
that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB 
receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. For 
additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related 
notice published in the Federal Register on June 12, 2013 (78 FR 
35326).
    Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, 
Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in 
the ADDRESSES section within 30 days of publication of this notice in 
the Federal Register. In order to help ensure appropriate 
consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 1240-0005. 
The OMB is particularly interested in comments that:
     Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
     Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the 
burden of the proposed collection of information, including the 
validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
     Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and
     Minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate 
automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting 
electronic submission of responses.
