FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION

Granting of Request 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 of the waiting period provided by law and the premerger notification rules.

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.
