Atotech/MKS Instruments spread narrows on report China finalizing its review

The deal spread in MKS Instruments' (NASDAQ:MKSI) planned acquisition of Atotech (NYSE:ATC) narrowed on a report that China's antitrust regulator is finalizing its review of the deal. China's State Administration for Market Regulation is finalizing its review of the combination and approval could come any time, according to traders, who cited a report that's being circulated. The latest updates comes after a report from the same outfit earlier this month said the companies appear to have agreements with third parties in China and there appears to be a path to China approval. In early April the companies agreed to extend the walk date for the transaction to Sept. 30 to allow additional time for the regulatory approval by China. Potential antitrust approval for the ATC/MKSI deal comes after China late last month approved II-VI's purchase of Coherent. MKSI is set to report Q2 results on Wednesday with a conference call on Thursday morning.
