Halliburton, Baker Hughes agree to extend antitrust review deadline on merger


Baker Hughes and Halliburton have entered into a timing agreement with the antitrust division of the US DOJ (Department of Justice). It means the period for the DOJ’s review of the takeover will now be completed at the end of November, 90 days after both companies have certified compliance. A deal has also been reached between Baker Hughes and Halliburton to extend the time period for closing the acquisition to no later than December.
