Entegris Acquires Jetalon Solutions, Inc.

BILLERICA, Mass., April 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Entegris, Inc. (Nasdaq:ENTG), a leader in contamination control and materials handling solutions for very demanding manufacturing environments, today reported it acquired the assets of privately held Jetalon Solutions, Inc., a California-based supplier of fluid metrology products. The transaction, which was completed on April 1, 2013, was not deemed material for disclosure purposes and the terms were not disclosed.

Jetalon Solutions' metrology and sensor products use refractive index technology to achieve greater precision in real-time chemical blending, which is increasingly critical in applications where minute variations of process fluid concentration levels can adversely impact manufacturing yields.   In semiconductor manufacturing, Jetalon products monitor and control liquid concentrations in all wet processing areas including wafer surface preparation and cleaning, photolithography, CMP, post-CMP cleaning, and copper electroplating. In the biopharmaceutical market, these solutions are used in both upstream and downstream processing in applications such as real-time in-line concentration monitoring of media and buffer preparations. This is an area of increasing interest for biopharmaceutical applications given the growing trend from batch manufacturing to real-time or continuous manufacturing processes.

Bertrand Loy, president and chief executive officer, said: "We are excited about the acquisition of Jetalon Solutions and the potential it has for Entegris. Jetalon's unique technology expands our fluid sensing and control offering and adds to our existing capabilities for creating innovative and differentiated solutions to improve our customers' process control capability and manufacturing yields not only in semiconductor applications, but in life sciences and other industries as well."

Dr. Ron Chiarello, president and CEO of Jetalon Solutions, said: "This combination should benefit our respective companies and shareholders, as well as our combined customers who will be able to leverage future technology innovations for achieving higher yields and reduced costs in their manufacturing operations. We are very pleased to be part of the Entegris team and look forward to working with them to scale our solutions in both established and new markets."

Entegris will be showcasing Jetalon Solutions products as well as other Entegris technologies at booth #3643 at the Interphex tradeshow being held on April 23-25, 2013 in New York City and at the Company's hospitality suite at the SEMICON West tradeshow held on July 9-11, 2013 in San Francisco. For more information contact:  ann_knutson@entegris.com.
