Benton Harbor, Mich. — The U.S. Department of Justice has requested additional information and documentation as it considers whether Whirlpool’s proposed acquisition of Maytag would violate federal antitrust laws.
Both companies said such a “second” request is typical in transactions of this nature, and plan to respond promptly to the request. The companies added that they are working closely with the Justice Department’s antitrust division and plan to cooperate fully with its investigation.
The appliance giants still expect the transaction to close by the first quarter of 2006.
