Dear Mr. Sharpe:

In a brief telephone conversation on Monday, August 8, 1983, I asked your assistance in evaluating a transaction in which my client will be involved. The enclosed chart will hopefully be of some help in evaluating the deal. I would appreciate it if you would have a staff attorney call me as soon as possible, so that I can fill in some of the information that is missing from the chart, and review my tentative conclusions.

Your assistance is appreciated.

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.
