(Reuters) - Betting Firm Tabcorp Holdings (TAH.AX) said on Thursday it expected to stick to its October 18 date for a shareholder meeting to vote on its acquisition of lottery business Tatts Group TTS.AX, despite a court decision blocking the deal.
The A$6.15 billion ($4.93 billion) deal was cleared in June by the Australian Competition Tribunal but the antitrust regulator appealed the decision and won on Wednesday.
The deal announced a year ago now faces further delays.
