Recruitment giant Randstad has finalised its acquisition of job board Monster Worldwide.

In a statement, Randstad said it has successfully completed its tender offer to acquire any and all outstanding shares of common stock of Monster Worldwide, at a price of $3.40 (£2.80) per share in cash.

Randstad says it now expects the acquisition to complete tomorrow (1 November), adding Monster will continue operating as a separate and independent entity under the Monster name.
