Aon Corporation announced on Friday that its stockholders voted overwhelmingly in favor of the proposal to approve the previously announced change in corporate domicile of the parent company of the Aon group of companies from Delaware to the U.K. at a special stockholder meeting held at its office in Chicago, IL earlier today. Ninety-eight percent of the votes cast by stockholders were for the approval of the proposed transaction, representing over 82% of the total outstanding voting stock of Aon Corporation.
The Company expects the transaction to close on or around April 2, 2012 subject to satisfaction of certain regulatory approvals and other closing conditions set forth in the merger agreement. A press release will be issued with respect to the transaction upon its completion.
