Reckitt Benckiser announces early termination of antitrust waiting period for Adams purchase


SLOUGH, U.K. Reckitt Benckiser’s bid for the business Adams Respiratory Therapeutics won’t run into any legal hurdles—the company announced Tuesday that they have received early termination of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976 relating to the previously-announced tender offer to purchase all of the outstanding shares of common stock of Adams.

That tender offer expires at midnight in New York on Jan. 23, however.
