BRUSSELS (Reuters) – U.S. life sciences company Illumina (NASDAQ:) said on Monday that it had anticipated an order from EU antitrust enforcers to keep recently acquired Grail as a separate company while waiting for regulatory clearance of the deal.

In the days ahead, the company stated that it will discuss the European Commission’s suggestions. Although the EU competition enforcer earlier Monday stated it planned to take interim steps against the company in the wake of the closing prematurely, it did not give details.
