Harris, L3 win U.S. antitrust approval for merger

WASHINGTON, June 20 (Reuters) - Military communication equipment providers Harris Corp and L3 Technologies Inc have won U.S. antitrust approval for their merger, the Justice Department said on Thursday.

The government required the companies to sell Harris' night vision business in order to be given approval for the proposed transaction.

The deal was announced in October 2018.
