The waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976 for the proposed acquisition of NIC (Nasdaq: EGOV) by Tyler Technologies (NYSE: TYL) has expired.
The transaction is still subject to approval by NIC stockholders and other customary closing conditions and both companies expect the deal to be finalized in the second quarter of 2021, according to a joint release published Friday.
Plano, Texas-based Tyler provides software and technology services to the public sector.
Olathe, Kansas-based NIC is a digital platforms and payment systems provider to more than 7,100 federal, local and state government agencies.
In February, Tyler signed a $2.3 billion deal to buy NIC as part of a push to expand the delivery of end-to-end platforms to federal, state and local governments.
