Varian has announced that its stockholders have voted to approve the previously announced pending combination with Siemens Healthineers AG (Frankfurt: SHL) at a special meeting. Varian stockholders voted overwhelmingly in favor of the transaction.
"The overwhelming support our stockholders have expressed for this combination reflects the compelling value and important opportunity to shape the future of healthcare we see with Siemens Healthineers," said Dow Wilson, Chief Executive Officer. "This vote brings us closer not only toward completing this transformative combination, but also toward realizing our vision of a world without fear of cancer. We look forward to securing the remaining regulatory approvals and closing the transaction."
Varian continues to work toward completing the transaction and remains focused on supporting customers and their patients. The transaction is expected to close in the first half of calendar year 2021, subject to other regulatory approvals and customary closing conditions.
The final vote results will be filed in a Form 8-K with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.Back To Top
