The Federal Trade Commission has issued Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) a second request for additional data associated with its proposed $9.2 billion acquisition of Orbital ATK (NYSE: OA).

Northrop said Wednesday it received the request as FTC reviews the transaction as part of the regulatory process.

The request for additional information came a week after Orbital ATK shareholders voted to approve the merger.

Northrop will pay $7.8 billion in cash and assume $1.4 billion in net debt from Orbital ATK under the deal originally announced in September.

Northrop said it expects to close the transaction in the first half of 2018.
