Sysco-US Foods merger regulatory review remains on track Sysco issued the following statement in response to a recent report regarding the status of the Federal Trade Commission's review of the proposed Sysco-US Foods merger. Bill DeLaney, Sysco president and CEO, said: "In light of this recent misleading report, it's important to convey that Sysco continues to cooperate closely with the Federal Trade Commission in its review of the proposed merger of Sysco and US Foods. We are engaged in a productive dialogue with the FTC, and the review is proceeding as expected. We continue to believe that the Commission, once it finishes its investigation, will conclude that our industry is -- and will continue to be -- fiercely competitive. Our proposed merger will benefit customers and help us become more efficient in this rapidly evolving marketplace."
