DOJ Requests More Info on DigitalGlobe and GeoEye Deal

DigitalGlobe announced that both companies received the ‘second requests’ on Sept. 21, and added that the deal cannot close until 30 days after each has successfully complied with the request.

The companies also need to each obtain shareholder approval and regulatory approval from the Federal Communications Commission to close on the deal.

DigitalGlobe said it continues to anticipate the deal will close in the fourth quarter of 2012 or first quarter of 2013.
