Amphenol Completes Acquisition of MTS Systems


Reading time ( words)

Amphenol Corporation, a leading global provider of high-technology interconnect, antenna and sensor solutions, announced that it has completed its acquisition of MTS Systems Corporation (MTS). In connection with the close of the transaction, MTS common stock will cease to trade on the NASDAQ.

“We are excited to have completed our acquisition of MTS and to welcome the talented MTS team to the Amphenol family,” said R. Adam Norwitt, Amphenol’s President and CEO. “The combined strength and breadth of our companies’ highly complementary sensor product portfolios will allow us to offer our customers an expanded array of innovative technologies across multiple end markets. We look forward to the new opportunities created by the collective strengths of Amphenol and MTS Sensors as we further capitalize on the long-term growth potential of the electronics revolution.”

Amphenol expects the MTS Sensors business to add approximately $350 million in sales in the first twelve months after closing. As previously disclosed, MTS Sensors is expected to be $0.05 accretive to Amphenol’s earnings per share in the first twelve months after closing, which excludes acquisition-related expenses and reflects the Company’s recent 2-for-1 stock split.

As previously announced, Amphenol has entered into an agreement to sell the MTS Test & Simulation business to Illinois Tool Works Inc. (NYSE: ITW). The agreed sale price for the transaction is $750 million, subject to certain post-closing adjustments and excluding transaction-related expenses. The sale of the Test & Simulation business is expected to close following the receipt of all required regulatory approvals. Until that time, Amphenol will account for and report the Test & Simulation business as a discontinued operation.

Amphenol plans to further discuss the MTS acquisition on its first quarter earnings call, scheduled for April 28, 2021.

It really doesn’t matter who you think your external competitors are, because the only competitor that really matters is you. Of course, you will look externally to stay on top of latest trends, but when it comes to competition, just competing with yourself is a win. When you look at yourself as your greatest competitor you will start with a huge advantage: you already have great intel on how “your competition” thinks. Ask yourself, “What can I do to displace my ‘competitor’ and create something much better?”
