PROVIDENCE, R.I., April 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Nortek, Inc. (Nasdaq: NTK), a global diversified company with leading brands and innovative, technology-driven products and solutions for residential and commercial applications, today announced the closing of its previously announced acquisition of 2GIG Technologies, Inc. (2GIG), a privately held innovative designer and supplier of residential security and home automation systems. The closing follows the satisfaction of all customary closing conditions, including approval pursuant to the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976.

In accordance with the terms of the acquisition agreement, Nortek acquired 2GIG for approximately $135 million on a cash and debt-free basis, funded via a combination of cash on hand and borrowings under Nortek's asset-based credit facility.

"2GIG's addition to the Nortek family of companies positions our Technology Solutions segment as one of the world's top-tier hardware developers and manufacturers in the growing residential security and home automation markets," said Nortek President and Chief Executive Officer Michael J. Clarke. "We are pleased to have completed the 2GIG transaction as planned, as it allows us to better support Vivint and other 2GIG customers, while also providing our Technology Solutions companies with new cross-selling opportunities."
