Greg Hayes, CEO of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX), has said the company is “on track” with the regulatory clearance process and in the final phase of completion with regard to its pending $30 billion acquisition of Rockwell Collins (NYSE: COL), The Gazette reported Tuesday.

“We expect the transaction to close here still in the third quarter,” Hayes said during an earnings call Tuesday.
