Microsoft announced it would buy Nuance in April to boost its presence in cloud services for healthcare. The deal has already received regulatory approval in the United States and Australia, without remedies given.
Microsoft has also been in preliminary talks with the CMA ahead of a formal request for approval of the Nuance deal, the sources had said.
Microsoft and Nuance did not immediately respond to Reuters’ requests for comment.
Interested parties have until Jan. 10 to comment on the deal, the CMA said.
