* Requests for filing status and transaction numbers should be addressed to the general PNO number: (202) 326-3100. The Premerger staff receives hundreds of calls each week, thousands of calls every year, asking for interpretations of the HSR statute and rules. Many of the questions can be answered by reference to the statute, rules and information contained on this web site. Given the high volume of calls, we recommend that you review these online materials before placing a call to the PNO. It is also helpful if you wait until the structure of the transaction is as close as possible to being finalized before calling to analyze HSR reportability. If you still have questions after reviewing these materials, we will be happy to speak with you. When calling, in order to serve you better, please have your facts and references before you, including the structure of the transaction and all relevant factors. Your cooperation is appreciated.

Special Notice Concerning Delivery of Filings to the Premerger Notification Office
Please note that security measures in place at the Commission may cause delays in the receipt of filings sent via shipping companies such as FedEx and UPS. All shipped packages must be processed by the mailroom before delivery to the PNO. This processing may take some time. The waiting period for the transaction does not start until receipt of all relevant filings by the PNO.
