Shareholders Say "Voltron Unite!" To United-Continental Merger

United and Continental are oh so close to merging, now that shareholders for both airlines have approved the deal.


Shareholders of United parent UAL Corp. met in Elk Grove Township on Friday morning to vote on the $3 billion stock swap. The companies expect the deal to close in the next two weeks.

The shareholder votes come just a few weeks after the Justice Dept. wrapped up its inquiry into the merger in a very timely fashion.
