In addition to the approval of Technip and FMC Technologies shareholders, the proposed combination remains subject to other closing conditions, including the conclusion of antitrust review in certain countries, other regulatory approvals, and other customary closing conditions. The combination is expected to close in early 2017, subject to the satisfaction of these conditions.
