Schlumberger-Cameron merger receives clearance from US DOJ

The US Department of Justice (DOJ) has cleared the proposed merger between Schlumberger Ltd. (NYSE: SLB) and Cameron International Corp. (NYSE: CAM) without any conditions, granting early termination of the waiting period required by the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976 with respect to the proposed merger.

The closing of the proposed merger remains subject to approval by Cameron stockholders and the satisfaction or waiver of the other closing conditions contained in the merger agreement between Schlumberger and Cameron. As previously announced by Cameron, the special meeting of stockholders of Cameron is scheduled for Dec. 17, during which stockholders of Cameron will consider and vote upon the proposed adoption of the agreement and plan of merger between the companies.

Subject to receipt of approval from Cameron stockholders and satisfaction or waiver of other closing conditions contained in the merger agreement, Schlumberger and Cameron expect to close the merger in the first quarter of 2016. Until that time, Schlumberger and Cameron will continue to operate as separate and independent companies and continue to serve their respective customers.
