European regulators just issued a "statement of objections" to Amazon's deal to acquire iRobot.
The stock of iRobot is falling after European antitrust regulators expressed fresh concern over its acquisition by Amazon.
European Commission lawyers initially opposed sending a warning to Amazon over its $1.4 billion acquisition of robot vacuum maker iRobot, three people with direct knowledge of the matter said on Wednesday. The Commission's legal service did not think a statement of objections regarding the deal was warranted, in contrast with antitrust officials handling the case, the people said. Without such a charge sheet, the deal would have been cleared unconditionally.
