API SmartBrief | May 02, 2016

Oil services providers Halliburton and Baker Hughes called off a $35 billion merger that stirred opposition from officials in the US and overseas, the companies said. The Justice Department sued last month to block the deal over antitrust concerns. The merger agreement calls for Halliburton to pay Baker Hughes $3.5 billion in the case of a breakup.
