FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION


Granting of Requests for Early Termination of the Waiting Period 
Under the Premerger Notification Rules

    Section 7A of the Clayton Act, 15 U.S.C. 18a, as added by Title II 
of the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, requires 
persons contemplating certain mergers or acquisitions to give the 
Federal Trade Commission and the Assistant Attorney General advance 
notice and to wait designated periods before consummation of such 
plans. Section 7A(b)(2) of the Act permits the agencies, in individual 
cases, to terminate this waiting period prior to its expiration and 
requires that notice of this action be published in the Federal 
Register.
    The following transactions were granted early termination--on the 
dates indicated--of the waiting period provided by law and the 
premerger notification rules. The listing for each transaction includes 
the transaction number and the parties to the transaction. The grants 
were made by the Federal Trade Commission and the Assistant Attorney 
General for the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice. 
Neither agency intends to take any action with respect to these 
proposed acquisitions during the applicable waiting period.

                       Early Terminations Granted
              [February 1, 2017 through February 28, 2017]
