December 2, 2021

Outdoor sporting goods retailer Sportsman’s Warehouse Holdings Inc (SPWH.O) and Great Outdoors Group, owner of the Bass Pro Shops chain, have called off their merger deal, according to a regulatory filing on Thursday.

The decision follows feedback from the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) that led the companies to believe they would not receive clearance to close the deal, according to the filing. REUTERS
