Nov 27 (Reuters) - Steelmaker Wheeling-Pittsburgh Corp WPSC.O and steel distributor Esmark Inc said their shareholders approved the merger of the two companies.
The privately held Esmark took control of Wheeling-Pittsburgh in December 2006 following a proxy battle.
Shares of the combined company, to be called Esmark Inc, will trade on the Nasdaq under the ticker symbol “ESMK,” effective Nov 28, the companies said in a statement. (Reporting by Shailesh Kuber in Bangalore; Editing by Pratish Narayanan)
