The two companies expect to close the acquisition “as soon as reasonably practicable, subject to the satisfaction of any remaining conditions,” said a Keurig statement.

When the transaction closes, JAB will acquire Keurig for $13.9 billion, or $92 a share. Yesterday, Keurig announced that its shareholders had voted to approve the acquisition.
