Shareholders Approve Huntington/FirstMerit Merger


Shareholders in Columbus-based Huntington Bancshares have approved the company's proposed merger with Akron-based FirstMerit. FirstMerit shareholders have also approved the deal, which must be approved by the federal government before the merger closes this fall. The controversial 3.5 billion dollar merger would make Huntington one of the nation's largest regional banks.
