Justice Department asks UBM for more detail on PR Newswire
UBM said it and Cision will cooperate fully with the DoJ in responding to the request and will continue to work cooperatively with the US regulators in connection with their review of the transaction as they look to reach a prompt resolution.
It said the request related to certain PRN products "which account for a very small portion of PRN's global revenues".
UBM announced back in December that it had agreed the sale of PR Newswire to Cision for $841m.
It said at the time the deal represented "a significant step in the execution of UBM's 'Events First' strategy, the objective of which is to become the world's leading focused B2B Events business." ■
