Carpenter announces changes in Latrobe takeover agreement.

The deal worth USD558m (EUR461.9m) in cash and stock was announced in June last year.
Now the parties agreed to extend the period in which the takeover agreement can be cancelled if it is not implemented, to 30 April from 16 January 2012. The move became necessary to allow for more time for getting the required antitrust approvals.
Furthermore, some aspects of the agreement were amended to represent higher projected working capital at Latrobe.
