Published on .

Chicago—Printing company R.R. Donnelley & Sons Co. and financial printer Bowne & Co. has announced that the termination date for their merger agreement, which was announced Feb. 23, has been extended to Jan. 23, 2011. The previous termination date was Oct. 23.

Nonetheless, the two companies said they still expect the transaction to close this year. The delay in closing the transaction is due to a request for additional information from the Federal Trade Commission, which asked for the additional information under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act.
