CLEVELAND, Nov. 29, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- TransDigm Group Incorporated (NYSE: TDG), announced today that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire the Actuation Business (Actuation or the Business) of Telair International Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Teleflex Incorporated (NYSE: TFX), for approximately $94 million in cash. The acquisition, subject to receipt of Hart-Scott-Rodino approval and other customary closing conditions, is expected to close by December 31, 2010.  Actuation, located in Simi Valley, California manufactures proprietary, highly engineered electro-mechanical products and other components for commercial and military aircraft. The Business has expected calendar 2010 revenues of approximately $25 million.  Approximately two-thirds of the revenues come from the commercial aerospace market with the balance to the defense market.  About two-thirds of the revenues come from the aftermarket.

The business has a broad installed base of product on Boeing commercial transports along with applications on a number of high use military platforms. The products will benefit both from the anticipated recovery in the commercial aerospace market and our value creation activities."
