Alamo Group Acquires Tenco Group

Alamo Group Inc. (NYSE: ALG) announced that effective yesterday it has acquired substantially all of the assets and business of Tenco Group Inc. and its subsidiaries. (“Tenco”), a Canadian based manufacturer and distributor of snow and ice removal equipment, for approximately CDN $6 million in cash, plus the assumption of certain specified liabilities and subject to post closing adjustments.

Tenco’s principal markets are in Canada and the United States with operations in both countries. Tenco’s sales for their most recent fiscal year ending March 31, 2011 were approximately CDN $35 million. Tenco’s Canadian operations had been operating under Receivership Orders from the Quebec Superior Court since July 25, 2011, and this acquisition was approved by the Court on October 17, 2011.

Ron Robinson, Alamo Group’s President and Chief Executive Officer commented, “This is an excellent opportunity for us to expand our presence in snow removal equipment in North America, as Tenco complements and broadens our current range of Henke products in this sector. They have strong brand recognition that will enhance Alamo’s overall presence, particularly in Canada and the northeastern United States. Tenco’s business is in-line with our acquisition strategy and we believe it will be accretive to Alamo’s 2012 results.”

Alamo Group is a leader in the design, manufacture, distribution and service of high quality equipment for right-of-way maintenance and agriculture. Our products include truck and tractor mounted mowing and other vegetation maintenance equipment, street sweepers, snow removal equipment, pothole patchers, excavators, vacuum trucks, agricultural implements and related aftermarket parts and services.
