Shell and BG shareholders to vote on merger in January

Shareholders of Royal Dutch Shell and BG Group plan to vote on the merger of the two companies on Jan. 27 and Jan. 28, respectively, according to Reuters, citing statements from both firms today.

Shareholder approval is the final remaining hurdle for the proposed merger. Reuters noted that, following shareholder approval from both companies, the delisting of an acquired company's shares usually takes approximately 10 working days, so the Shell/BG merger could be completed in mid-February.
