Technip – FMC Technologies Merger Gets Brazilian Approval

The pending combination of FMC Technologies and Technip has received a clearance decision issued by the General Superintendent of the Administrative Council for Economic Defense (CADE), the Brazilian antitrust authority.

The decision is subject to a 15-day waiting period, the companies informed.

As previously announced on May 19, 2016, Technip and FMC Technologies will combine to create a global leader that will drive change by redefining the production and transformation of oil and gas.

Brazil is the last outstanding antitrust clearance required prior to closing. Clearance decisions have previously been provided by antitrust authorities in the United States, the European Union, India, Turkey, Mexico and Russia.

The pending transaction remains subject to other closing conditions, including approval of the transaction by FMC Technologies’ and Technip’s shareholders ,as well as certain regulatory approvals and customary closing conditions, FMC Technologies explained.

The transaction is expected to close in early 2017, subject to the satisfaction of these other closing conditions.
