(Reuters) – London Stock Exchange Group Plc <LSE.L> said on Wednesday its shareholders would vote on Nov. 26 on whether to approve its $27 billion (£21 billion) deal to buy data provider Refinitiv.

The LSE agreed to buy the financial information provider in August, in a deal aimed at offering trading across regions and currencies.

The deal was announced 10 months after a Blackstone-led <BX.N> consortium completed a leveraged buyout of Refinitiv from Thomson Reuters <TRI.TO>, the parent organisation of Reuters News.
