Itron Acquisition of Silver Spring Networks Clears Antitrust Review

05 Dec 2017

Itron, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITRI) and Silver Spring Networks, Inc. (NYSE: SSNI) announced the required waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976 (HSR Act) with respect to Itron’s acquisition of Silver Spring Networks has expired.

The expiration of the HSR Act waiting period satisfies one of the conditions to the closing of the pending acquisition, which remains subject to other customary closing conditions, including the approval of Silver Spring’s stockholders.

Both companies expect to close the transaction in early 2018.
