United Technologies (UTX) terminates its agreement to sell its pump and engine control systems business to TransDigm (TDG), citing DoJ objections to the transaction. Sale of the pump and engine control systems unit is one of the divestitures required as a condition of UTX's acquisition of Goodrich Corporation. UTX intends to comply with its obligation to sell the business to a buyer acceptable to the DoJ and European Commission. Any proposed transaction continues to be subject to regulatory approvals in the U.S. and other jurisdictions.
