Marsh & Mclennan gets U.S. antitrust approval for GBP4.3 billion Jardine Lloyd deal
The Federal Trade Commission granted an early termination of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act with respect to Marsh & McLennan's acquisition of Jardine Lloyd. The termination of the HSR waiting period effectively concludes the competition review of both the FTC and Department of Justice.
The acquisition remains subject to additional required antitrust and regulatory approvals as well as the approval of Jardine Lloyd shareholders. ■
