Thursday 08 Feb 2018 Author: Steven Frazer

Deadlines are coming thick and fast for industrial design software supplier AVEVA (AVV). The group expects to get the sign-off from US regulators on 9 February for its proposed £3bn merger with the software arm of French engineer Schneider Electric.

That will swiftly be followed on 15 February with a trading update for the Schneider part of the enlarged group. Final merger completion remains on track for some time towards the end of February.
