Harris Corp. said today the Justice Department, which is reviewing its planned merger with L3 Technologies, has requested "additional information and documentary materials."

The request, made yesterday, "extends the waiting period under the [Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act] until 30 days after both Harris and L3 have complied with the Second Request or such later time as the parties may agree with the DOJ, unless the waiting period is terminated earlier," the company said in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing.

According to the filing, the deal is still expected to close in mid-2019.
