As businesses and government agencies continue to take measures in response to the new coronavirus, one area of notable change is the federal merger clearance process. On March 13, the Department of Justice (“DOJ”) and the Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) implemented a temporary e-filing system for premerger notification documents and announced that, beginning on March 16, (1) they no longer would accept hard-copy filings and (2) early termination would not be granted for any filing as long as the e-filing system remained in place. As part of these efforts to limit the further spread of the coronavirus, the FTC also canceled a workshop on its vertical merger guidelines.
