This is with retroactive effect as of 24 February 2018 until information requested by the European Commission will be provided.

Such decisions are not uncommon in complex proceedings of this kind. Linde expects that the suspension will be lifted in the course of next week and that the review period will then continue to run.

The merger partners continue to work on completing the business combination as planned in the second half of 2018.
