The deal will mean that Hyundai will own Hyundai Construction Equipment as well as the Doosan Infracore construction equipment business.

Regulatory authorities in South Korea and other countries including China will be asked to approve the acquisition, with plans to complete the acquisition by the third quarter of 2021.
