- Plastics company Synthomer noted that ´╗┐Omnova shareholders had votd in favour of its proposed acquisition of the group.

The transaction had received regulatory clearance from US authorities in August.

It remained subject to merger clearances from the European Commission and in Turkey, the processes for which were ongoing.

Synthomer said it continued to target completion in late 2019.

'However, there can be no assurances regarding the timing of regulatory clearances which could delay completion to early 2020 and a further announcement will be made in due course,' it added.
