Renesas acquisition of IDT gets the all clear

Renesas’s acquisition of Integrated Device Technology has jumped its final regulatory hurdle. The companies have been notified by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (“CFIUS”) that the investigation of the companies’ proposed merger transaction is complete and that there are no unresolved national security concerns with respect to the transaction.

The approval by CFIUS was the last outstanding regulatory authorisation required to complete the transaction.

Antitrust clearance decisions have previously been obtained for the transaction from antitrust authorities in China, Germany, Hungary, South Korea and the United States.

IDT stockholders have previously voted to adopt the merger agreement and approve the transaction at a special meeting of stockholders held on January 15, 2019.

All necessary regulatory approvals for the acquisition have now been received and the transaction is expected to complete on March 29, 2019 Pacific Daylight Time, March 30, 2019 Japan Standard Time, subject to customary closing conditions.
