   DOW JONES NEWSWIRES 
 

Carpenter Technology Corp. (CRS) said the Federal Trade Commission has requested more details about proposed takeover of Latrobe Specialty Metals Inc.

In June, the maker of metals and engineered products agreed to acquire Latrobe from a group of investors for $388 million. At the time, Carpenter said the deal was set to close by the end of September.

Monday, Carpenter said the FTC has asked for more information about the deal as part of its regulatory review of the merger. The request extends an antitrust waiting period on the deal until 30 days after they respond.

The company said it and Latrobe plan to respond quickly to the request and to continue cooperating with the agency to secure antitrust clearance as soon as possible.

Shares closed Monday 9.8% at $43.97 in the midst of a broad market downturn and weren't active after hours. The stock has risen 9.3% so far this year, better than the wider market.
