The $1.34 billion deal by Gatehouse Media’s parent company, New Media Investment Group, to acquire USA Today publisher Gannett will get the thumbs-up or thumbs-down from both companies’ shareholders on Nov. 14.

The deal got clearance from Department of Justice antitrust regulators last week, but still needs approval from the EU. Shareholders have been cool to the offer as both companies have seen their stocks slide since the cash and stock deal was announced in early August. Gannett closed Tuesday at $10.66, down 9 cents, and New Media ended the day at $8.58, down 2.7%.
