Whole Foods shareholders gathered at the company’s headquarters in Austin, Texas, on Wednesday to vote on whether or not the grocery chain should be acquired by internet giant Amazon.

The verdict: yes.

Now, completion of the transaction is subject to regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions. But the two companies are one step closer to sealing their $13.7 billion deal.

The parties expect to finalize the merger during the second half of 2017.
