Reading time ( words)

Firan Technology Group Corporation has entered into an agreement to acquire IMI, Inc. based in Haverhill, Massachusetts, north of Boston. IMI is a manufacturer of specialty RF circuit boards focused on the aerospace and defense markets. The closing of the acquisition is subject to approval by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) and other customary closing conditions. The companies will shortly apply for CFIUS approval. The closing of the transaction is expected to take place in the first quarter of fiscal 2023.

FTG will acquire 100% of the common shares of IMI for cash consideration of approximately $2M CAD, subject to typical closing adjustments. The target company has had reported annual sales of approximately $4-5M CAD in its unaudited financial statements over the past few years.

“FTG had identified a desire to increase its product offering of RF circuit boards for aerospace and defense applications. This acquisition, if completed, will complement FTG’s existing facilities, add new customers and provide a broader product offering to our existing customer base," said Brad Bourne, president and CEO of FTG. “Peter Bigelow has done an excellent job building IMI’s RF capability through investments in people, processes and technology and FTG plans to grow IMI from its current location.”

Peter Bigelow added, “I am pleased with the sale of IMI to FTG, as I believe FTG will continue to build the business going forward to the benefit of IMI’s customers, employees and other stakeholders. While the ownership of the company is changing, I have agreed to remain with IMI as president for a period of time after the closing of the sale to FTG.”

Pricing Strategies With Michael Carano

09/13/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
We recently spoke with longtime I-Connect007 columnist Michael Carano, vice president of quality at Averatek, about pricing strategies for PCB fabricators. We’re seeing some movement in this segment as fabricators, already dealing with some of the tightest profit margins around, find themselves having to either raise their prices or trying to massage more revenue out of their already streamlined processes. We asked Michael for some pricing strategies for fabricators, and he shared a range of options for today’s manufacturers who aren’t afraid to rethink their processes and try new ideas. And, as he says, people will still pay good money for a quality, reliable PCB.
