Meggitt shareholders back Parker takeover

by Marc Selinger

US-based Parker Hannifin Corporation, which has offered to buy the United Kingdom's Meggitt for GBP6.3 billion (USD8.6 billion), cleared a crucial hurdle on 21 September as Meggitt shareholders approved the deal.

The vote occurred two weeks after US-based TransDigm Group ended its bid for Meggitt, leaving Parker as the sole suitor.

Parker's proposal still requires regulatory approval. The UK Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) said last month that the UK government is “closely monitoring” the proposed transaction, and has the power to intervene in takeovers that raise national security concerns.
