Reading time ( words)

Firan Technology Group Corporation has entered into an agreement to acquire IMI, Inc. based in Haverhill, Massachusetts, north of Boston. IMI is a manufacturer of specialty RF circuit boards focused on the aerospace and defense markets. The closing of the acquisition is subject to approval by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) and other customary closing conditions. The companies will shortly apply for CFIUS approval. The closing of the transaction is expected to take place in the first quarter of fiscal 2023.

FTG will acquire 100% of the common shares of IMI for cash consideration of approximately $2M CAD, subject to typical closing adjustments. The target company has had reported annual sales of approximately $4-5M CAD in its unaudited financial statements over the past few years.

“FTG had identified a desire to increase its product offering of RF circuit boards for aerospace and defense applications. This acquisition, if completed, will complement FTG’s existing facilities, add new customers and provide a broader product offering to our existing customer base," said Brad Bourne, president and CEO of FTG. “Peter Bigelow has done an excellent job building IMI’s RF capability through investments in people, processes and technology and FTG plans to grow IMI from its current location.”

Peter Bigelow added, “I am pleased with the sale of IMI to FTG, as I believe FTG will continue to build the business going forward to the benefit of IMI’s customers, employees and other stakeholders. While the ownership of the company is changing, I have agreed to remain with IMI as president for a period of time after the closing of the sale to FTG.”

Normally, the holiday season is a slow(ish) news time, but this year just feels different. My opinion is that the technology industry banked up a whole bunch of innovations and new products during the pandemic disruptions, which are coming to market as quickly as possible. The November/December news is full of technology discussion, as my selections this week clearly demonstrate.

The industry news cycle seems to be picking up speed lately. Of course, 30 days into the quarter is about when public companies announce their results, and in the midst of this worldwide financial situation, we’ve got all eyes on anything coming out from our counterparts in the industry. I’ve noticed that global corporate results (Nan Ya PCB and TTM, in particular) do seem to be on everyone’s radar. In addition to financial news, trade shows are popping back up around the world—Europe, India, and a special report from editor Andy Shaughnessy, who took his own road trip to Raleigh, reporting on PCB Carolina, which had its own heyday this year.
