( - Hutchinson Technology Inc. ( HTCH ) announced that the U.S. Federal Trade Commission has granted early termination of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended (the "HSR Act"), with respect to the proposed merger of HTI with and into a wholly owned subsidiary of TDK Corporation (TTDKF.PK, TTDKY.PK).

The early termination of the waiting period under the HSR Act satisfies one of the remaining conditions to the closing of the pending merger.

As of August 21, 2016, HTI's level of cash less any outstanding borrowings on its revolving line of credit as further defined in the merger agreement with affiliates of TDK, was approximately $47.1 million. Based on HTI's net cash position as of the measurement date, TDK would acquire all of the outstanding shares of common stock of HTI for total consideration of $4.00 per share.
