Milwaukee-based Wisconsin Energy Corp. has scheduled a special meeting of its shareholders for 10 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 21, at its headquarters, 231 W. Michigan St. in Milwaukee, to vote on the proposed merger of WEC and Integrys Energy Group.
On June 23, the parent company of Milwaukee-based We Energies announced it has agreed to buy Integrys, the Chicago-based parent company of Green Bay-based utility Wisconsin Public Service Corp. If approved by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the Federal Communications Commission, the Wisconsin Public Service Commission, the Illinois Commerce Commission and the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission, as well as anti-trust regulators and the shareholders of We Energies and Integrys, the transaction could be approved by summer 2015.
Integrys will hold its shareholder meeting at the same time as WEC in Chicago. Each company’s shareholders of record at the close of business on Monday, Oct. 13 will be eligible to vote.
