Subject: Item 4(c) Question


I have a question regarding Item 4(c).

I have a document that is a due diligence report. It is divided up into several sections, tax, HR, etc., and most of the sections are non‐responsive. There is a section on Growth Strategies that is responsive, which obviously makes the document as a whole responsive.

In some of the non‐responsive sections, there are supporting documents embedded within (they show up in the main documents as a non‐accessible icon). Assume these embedded documents are also non responsive, and relate only to the non responsive sections of the main document. Do I need to submit these documents as well?




About Informal Interpretations

Informal interpretations provide guidance from previous staff interpretations on the applicability of the HSR rules to specific fact situations. You should not rely on them as a substitute for reading the Act and the Rules themselves. These materials do not, and are not intended to, constitute legal advice.
