Teledyne completes acquisition of FLIR Systems

Teledyne Technologies, a provider of digital imaging products and software, instrumentation, and aerospace and defence electronics, has announced the successful completion of its acquisition of FLIR Systems.

Both companies held special meetings of stockholders on 13 May, where the stockholders approved and adopted merger proposals related to the agreement and plan of merger dated 4 January 2021. FLIR will now be included in Teledyne’s Digital Imaging segment and operate under the name Teledyne FLIR.

Under the terms of the agreement, FLIR stockholders received US$28 per share in cash and 0.0718 shares of Teledyne common stock for each FLIR share, which implies a total purchase price of approximately US$57.40 per FLIR share based on Teledyne’s closing price on 13 May. The aggregate consideration for the transaction was approximately US$8.2 billion, including net debt. Teledyne expects the acquisition to be immediately accretive to earnings, excluding transaction costs and purchase price accounting, and accretive to GAAP earnings in the first full calendar year following the acquisition.

Simultaneously, Teledyne announced multiple executive promotions, effective immediately. Edwin Roks, Vice President of Teledyne and President of Teledyne’s Digital Imaging Segment, is now Executive Vice President of Teledyne. Roks will continue to serve as President of Teledyne’s Digital Imaging Segment, which now includes Teledyne FLIR. In addition, Todd Booth is promoted to Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer for the acquired Teledyne FLIR group of businesses.

“We appreciate the support from our stockholders, and I am delighted to welcome FLIR to the Teledyne family,” said Robert Mehrabian, Executive Chairman of Teledyne. “As a combined company, Teledyne FLIR will uniquely provide a full spectrum of imaging technologies and products spanning X-ray through infrared and from components to complete imaging systems. Teledyne FLIR will also provide a complete range of unmanned systems and imaging payload across all domains ranging from deep sea to deep space. Finally, I want to congratulate Edwin and Todd, whose promotions are very well deserved.”
