Epicor Gets Hart-Scott-Rodino Clearance On Acquisition

Irvine-based Epicor said today that it has received notification from the Federal Trade Commission of early termination of the waiting period for its acquisition of NSB Retail Systems PLC. The Hart-Scott-Rodino Act waiting period was one of the hurdles in its deal for UK-based NSB Retail. Epicor said the deal is steal subject to court approval. Epicor said in December it would be NSB Retail Systems, a developer of software for retailers, for $322M.
