LMI Aerospace Inc Completes Acquisition of Valent Aerostructures


Monday, 31 Dec 2012 08:00am EST 

LMI Aerospace Inc announced that it completed its acquisition of Valent Aerostructures, LLC (Valent) on December 28, 2012. Headquartered in Kansas City, Missouri, Valent is a provider of complex, structural components, sub-assemblies and machined parts for OEM and Tier 1 airframe manufacturers in the aerospace and defense industries. The acquisition was structured as a purchase of all the outstanding equity of Valent for a price of $237 million, plus certain retained obligations of $9.7 million and subject to adjustment for working capital and transaction expenses. As part of the purchase price, LMI issued to the former equity holders of Valent an aggregate of approximately 784,000 shares of LMI common stock, which represented $15 million of value. The purchase agreement also includes a potential earnout of up to $40 million in the event Valent surpasses certain EBITDA thresholds in 2013. In connection with the closing of the acquisition, LMI completed its previously announced debt refinancing and entered into $300 million of new senior secured credit facilities comprised of a $225 million term loan facility and a $75 million revolving credit facility. LMI has used or expects to use the new facilities to finance the Valent acquisition, refinance existing debt and for general corporate purposes including working capital requirements.
