REGAL REXNORD CORPORATION COMPLETES PREVIOUSLY ANNOUNCED ACQUISITION OF ARROWHEAD SYSTEMS
BELOIT, WI - Regal Rexnord Corporation (NYSE: RRX) today announced that it has completed its acquisition of Arrowhead Systems, a global leader in providing industrial process automation solutions, in an all-cash transaction valued at $297 million.
"We are excited to welcome Arrowhead to Regal Rexnord" said Louis Pinkham, Regal Rexnord's Chief Executive Officer. "Arrowhead aligns nicely with our strategy to transform Regal Rexnord into a faster-growing, higher-margin enterprise. Its highly engineered automation and palletizer products and solutions - many of which directly support rising consumer demand for more environmentally friendly packaging - are differentiated and highly valued by its customers, evident in its strong organic sales growth rates and mid-30's gross margins."
"The business is also nicely complementary to our legacy Regal Rexnord motion control offering, which includes various engineered components and subsystems, supporting attractive revenue and cost synergies estimated at $12 million and an ROIC exceeding 10%, both by year 5."
