The news comes ahead of Thursday's deadline for the FTSE 100 group's shareholders to decide on the turnaround specialist's takeover proposal.
Clark did not rule out further intervention on the grounds of national security, since GKN "is a longstanding supplier of components and services directly, and through a chain of suppliers, to the British Armed Forces and to security bodies in some of our allies".
