Northrop Grumman said today the European Commission has notified it that it has approved the contractor's planned acquisition of Orbital ATK.

"Northrop Grumman continues to support the U.S. Federal Trade Commission's review of the acquisition," the company added.

In December, Northrop Grumman said it had "received a request for additional information" from the FTC as it reviewed the acquisition.
