In a regulatory filing, according to Business Travel News, M&C's sister publication, Cvent and Vista Partners mutually agreed to extend the termination date of their merger agreement to April 17, 2017. After announcing in April 2016 their intention to merge and submitting initial U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filings, Vista withdrew its Hart-Scott-Rodino notification and report and refiled to extend the official antitrust review period. As that period expired on July 1, the U.S. Department of Justice made a second request for information, pushing the Cvent-Vista agreement up against the Oct. 17 deadline. The original merger agreement provided for a six-month extension, and the companies have now exercised that option. All other terms of the agreement remain unchanged.
