Everett-based Intermec extended the deadline for completing its sale to Honeywell by four months after the Federal Trade Commission requested additional information about the deal’s antitrust implications.
The company, which makes radio-frequency identification (RFID) products and bar code printers, moved the date from June 10 to October 10, according to a regulatory filing Monday.
The companies announced in December that Honeywell, a manufacturing conglomerate, would buy Intermec for $10 a share, about $600 million. Intermec shareholders approved the deal in March.
“Both Honeywell and Intermec are cooperating closely with the FTC and working diligently to comply with the second request, with the continued goal of closing the transaction by the end of the second quarter,” the filing said.
