Harris and L3 Technologies said today their planned merger will close June 29.

“Upon closing, Harris will be renamed L3Harris Technologies, Inc., and shares of L3Harris common stock will trade on the [New York Stock Exchange] under ticker symbol ‘LHX,’” the companies said.

The Justice Department yesterday OK’d the deal, on the condition that Harris divests its night vision business.

In today’s statement, the companies said the divestiture “is expected to be completed following the merger, pursuant to Harris’ previously announced sale agreement with Elbit Systems Ltd.”
