Online Extra - PW & Coopers partners approve merger

Price Waterhouse and Coopers & Lybrand announced on 1 December that partners had ?overwhelmingly approved' plans to merge their practices worldwide.

In a prepared joint statement, Coopers & Lybrand International chairman Nicholas Moore and Price Waterhouse CEO Jim Schiro said, ?Our task now is to secure the needed regulatory clearances, complete the transaction and move quickly to integrate fully our two organisations.?
