EU could approve Google-DoubleClick merger next week

European regulators could give unconditional approval to Google-DoubleClick merger on March 11, Bloomberg reports.

European regulators are planning to grant approval for Google's proposed $3.1 billion takeover of DoubleClick, possibly on March 11, according to a Bloomberg report.

And that would be approval without conditions, three sources familiar with the matter told the news service.

Google was given the go-ahead by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission in December, but has been waiting for European regulators to act.
