Kaydon To Be Acquired By SKF For $35.50 Per Share In Cash

Stocks in this article: KDN

Under the terms of the definitive agreement, which has been unanimously approved by both companies’ Boards of Directors, SKF will commence a tender offer on or after September 16, 2013 to purchase all of Kaydon’s outstanding shares for $35.50 per share in cash. The Transaction is subject to customary terms and conditions and regulatory approvals and is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2013. Kaydon stockholders will also receive their regular quarterly dividend of $0.20 per share that was declared on July 24, 2013.

Under the terms of the definitive agreement, Kaydon has the right to solicit third parties with respect to alternative acquisition proposals through October 15, 2013 (the "Go-shop Period"). Kaydon does not anticipate that it will disclose any developments with regard to this process unless and until Kaydon’s Board of Directors makes a decision with respect to a potential superior proposal. There can be no assurance that this process will result in a superior proposal. The agreement also includes customary breakup fees payable to SKF in connection with the termination of the agreement in certain circumstances.

In connection with the Transaction, Barclays is acting as exclusive financial advisor to Kaydon and Paul Hastings LLP is serving as Kaydon’s legal counsel.
