After over a year, Ball Corp is finally set to complete its takeover of can rival Rexam

The company, which announced its intention to buy Rexam for US$6.6bn over a year ago, said yesterday that the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) in the US has okayed the move. At the same time, the commission also approved the divestment of some Rexam assets to Ardagh Group, a transaction that was agreed to satisfy the European Commission.

The European Commission subsequently granted unconditional approval last week for Ball to swallow Rexam.
