The most recent filings will permit the FTC to consider the OMG acquisition of the metals management, automotive catalysts, fuel cells, precious metals chemistry, technical materials and jewelry and electroplating businesses of dmc2 at the same time it considers OMG's proposed divestiture of the electronic materials, performance pigments, glass systems and Cerdec ceramics division of dmc2 to Ferro Corp.
