FTC Will Allow Enterprise Purchase of Vanguard

The Federal Trade Commission has announced it will not block Enterprise Rent-A-Car's purchase of Vanguard Car Rental Holdings LLC, reports the St. Louis Dispatch.

The deal must now gain approval in Canada, which should occur by August, according to Enterprise.
