OFT decision on merger expected on Feb 13
AG Barr and Britvic have issued a revised timetable for their proposed all-share merger.
A stock market announcement today states both parties expect the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) to make its ruling on their merger proposal on February 13.
This follows an announcement earlier in the week the OFT had put the brakes on the merger, scheduled to complete on January 30, to give the regulator more time to review the proposal.
AG Barr and Britvic agreed merger terms last November.
The combined group, which will be called Barr Britvic Soft Drinks plc, will create one of the largest drinks companies in Europe with annual sales of more than £1.5 billion.
