Acquisition   $3.7 billion for Joy Global
"We are pleased with the outcome of today's vote and appreciate the support we have received from Joy Global stockholders for the Komatsu transaction," said Ted Doheny, President and CEO of Joy Global.

As previously announced on July 21, 2016, Joy Global and Komatsu entered into a definitive merger agreement pursuant to which Komatsu will acquire Joy Global in a transaction valued at approximately $3.7 billion, including Joy Global's outstanding indebtedness.

Joy Global stockholders will receive $28.30 per share in cash for each outstanding share of common stock held at the time of the closing of the transaction.

The completion of the transaction remains subject to certain other closing conditions, including obtaining necessary regulatory clearances under competition laws in relevant countries.

The parties have received the necessary clearances in both the United States and Canada. The transaction is on track to close by mid-2017, and may occur in early-2017 depending on the progress of the remaining regulatory clearance procedures.
