Amphenol Completes Acquisition of MTS Systems


Reading time ( words)

Amphenol Corporation, a leading global provider of high-technology interconnect, antenna and sensor solutions, announced that it has completed its acquisition of MTS Systems Corporation (MTS). In connection with the close of the transaction, MTS common stock will cease to trade on the NASDAQ.

“We are excited to have completed our acquisition of MTS and to welcome the talented MTS team to the Amphenol family,” said R. Adam Norwitt, Amphenol’s President and CEO. “The combined strength and breadth of our companies’ highly complementary sensor product portfolios will allow us to offer our customers an expanded array of innovative technologies across multiple end markets. We look forward to the new opportunities created by the collective strengths of Amphenol and MTS Sensors as we further capitalize on the long-term growth potential of the electronics revolution.”

Amphenol expects the MTS Sensors business to add approximately $350 million in sales in the first twelve months after closing. As previously disclosed, MTS Sensors is expected to be $0.05 accretive to Amphenol’s earnings per share in the first twelve months after closing, which excludes acquisition-related expenses and reflects the Company’s recent 2-for-1 stock split.

As previously announced, Amphenol has entered into an agreement to sell the MTS Test & Simulation business to Illinois Tool Works Inc. (NYSE: ITW). The agreed sale price for the transaction is $750 million, subject to certain post-closing adjustments and excluding transaction-related expenses. The sale of the Test & Simulation business is expected to close following the receipt of all required regulatory approvals. Until that time, Amphenol will account for and report the Test & Simulation business as a discontinued operation.

Amphenol plans to further discuss the MTS acquisition on its first quarter earnings call, scheduled for April 28, 2021.

Dr. Andrew Temte writes, “Discussing a philosophy for balanced work is really discussing a philosophy for a balanced life.” For me, this is really the true value of his new book, Balancing Act: Teach Coach Mentor Inspire. I love any book that talks about a holistic view to work as included in the entire balanced view of life.

It’s only January, but this may be the timeliest book of the year, as well as the most important. Why? Because it deals with the issues that we are facing right here now. The gap that Kriska refers to is the one between black and white, men and women and as the title suggests “we and them.”
