HOUSTON – Schlumberger Limited (NYSE: SLB) and Cameron International Corporation (NYSE: CAM) jointly announced today that the European Commission has cleared their proposed merger without any conditions following a Phase 1 review.
As previously announced, the U.S. Department of Justice cleared the proposed merger in November 2015 without any conditions; Cameron stockholders voted on December 17 to adopt the merger agreement between Schlumberger and Cameron; and antitrust clearances have been obtained in Canada, Brazil, Russia and Mexico.
