Following the recent announcement of Rockwell Collins’ proposed acquisition by United Technologies Corp., a special meeting of shareholders is to take place on January 11, 2018, when a vote will be taken on the proposals in connection with the deal.
The details are currently lodged with the Securities and Exchange Commission in the form of a definitive proxy statement and prospectus filed by the two companies at the beginning of December. All Rockwell Collins shareholders will be entitled to vote, providing they were on record by the end of play on December 8, 2017. This document will be sent separately to shareholders directly.
This special meeting will handle the shareholder vote only, and will not affect the scheduled Annual Meeting of Shareowners on February 1, 2018.
