Northrop Grumman said this week it has “received a request for additional information” from the Federal Trade Commission as part of the FTC's review of its planned acquisition of Orbital ATK.

Northrop said it “continues to expect the acquisition to close in the first half of 2018, after receiving regulatory approvals.”

Last month, Orbital ATK stockholders approved the proposed acquisition at a special meeting.
