(Reuters) - London Stock Exchange Group Plc LSE.L said on Wednesday its shareholders would vote on Nov. 26 on whether to approve its $27 billion (£21 billion) deal to buy data provider Refinitiv.

The LSE agreed to buy the financial information provider in August, in a deal aimed at offering trading across regions and currencies.

The deal was announced 10 months after a Blackstone-led BX.N consortium completed a leveraged buyout of Refinitiv from Thomson Reuters TRI.TO, the parent organisation of Reuters News.
