try

hearings    loom, please don't read them together and then I think you will get the meaning.

hearings: su song (have to use pinyin now)
loom: get closer

Yes, I agree, and furthermore,"loom" also connotes that something that' s going to happen is "bad".  Here, "hearings" are "bad" for those companies.

And I think the TL(target language) should deliver the negative sense.

Let's hear what other will say.
