Act

AGENCY: Federal Trade Commission.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Federal Trade Commission announces the revised thresholds 
for interlocking directorates required by the 1990 amendment of Section 
8 of the Clayton Act. Section 8 prohibits, with certain exceptions, one 
person from serving as a director or officer of two competing 
corporations if two thresholds are met. Competitor corporations are 
covered by Section 8 if each one has capital, surplus, and undivided 
profits aggregating more than $10,000,000, with the exception that no 
corporation is covered if the competitive sales of either corporation 
are less than $1,000,000. Section 8(a)(5) requires the Federal Trade 
Commission to revise those thresholds annually, based on the change in 
gross national product. The new thresholds, which take effect 
immediately, are $31,841,000 for Section 8(a)(1), and $3,184,100 for 
Section 8(a)(2)(A).
