AOL-CompuServe deal cleared
The Justice Department said it will not seek additional information regarding the acquisition, which means that it does not see any antitrust issues arising from the deal, a DOJ spokesman said.
The closing of the transaction remains subject to completion of foreign regulatory matters and CompuServe shareholder approval, but that is expected to occur during the first quarter of 1998.
Under a five-year contract, WorldCom will become AOL's largest network service provider.
