FMC Technologies Inc. has released a statement claiming that its merger with Technip has received an early decision from US antitrust regulators under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976 (HSR Act), concluding antitrust review of the merger.
The pending transaction still remains subject to other closing conditions, including approval from both companies’ shareholders, the finalisation of antitrust review in other countries, customary closing conditions, and other regulatory approvals and consents. FMC claims that, following the satisfaction of these closing conditions, the transaction should close in early 2017.
The new company – TechnipFMC – will base its operational headquarters in Paris, France, as well as Houston, Texas, and London, UK.
