Linde says it has no knowledge of approval for Praxair merger

MUNICH, Germany (Reuters) - Linde LING.DE said on Thursday it had no knowledge of its planned merger with Praxair PX.N being given the green light, denying a media report which said the deal had passed anti-trust hurdles in the United States.

“We have no such information,” a spokesman said.

Manager Magazin earlier on Thursday said the industrial gases groups Praxair and Linde are set to win U.S. antitrust approval for their planned $86 billion merger.
