A sign with the Takata logo is seen outside the Takata Corporation building in Auburn Hills, MichiganThe U.S. Transportation Department confirmed on Wednesday that automakers will recall another 35 million to 40 million U.S. air bag inflators installed by Takata Corp by 2019. Previously, 14 automakers had recalled 24 million vehicles with 28.8 million inflators linked to at least 11 deaths and more than 100 injuries. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said the decision "follows the agency’s confirmation of the root cause behind the inflators’ propensity to rupture." Takata must file new defect reports covering 35-40 million additional inflators by May 16 that will lead to automaker recalls.

The London Stock Exchange is seen during the morning rush hour in the City of LondonBy Noor Zainab Hussain and Richa Naidu LONDON/BENGALURU (Reuters) - The New York Stock Exchange's owner has shelved plans to make a counterbid for London Stock Exchange that could have derailed the British firm's planned merger with Deutsche Boerse. Intercontinental Exchange Inc's CEO Jeffrey Sprecher accused the LSE of failing to respond to the U.S. group's approaches despite several attempts to arrange meetings. LSE's shares fell as much 10 percent following ICE's announcement before recovering to close down 4.2 percent, whilst Deutsche Boerse rose 6 percent and ICE jumped 8.2 percent at the New York open.
