Highly Strategic Addition to HVAC Heating Platform
Accelerates High-Efficiency Commercial Boiler Strategy
Enhances New Product Development Capabilities
SPX Corporation (NYSE:SPXC) announced today that its subsidiary, The Marley Company, LLC, has acquired Patterson-Kelley from Harsco Corporation for cash consideration of approximately $60 million. Patterson-Kelley is a manufacturer and distributor of commercial boilers and water heaters headquartered in East Stroudsburg, PA. The results of the purchased business will be reported with SPX’s Heating platform within its HVAC segment.
Gene Lowe, SPX Corporation’s President and CEO, commented, “We are excited to welcome the Patterson-Kelley team to SPX. Patterson-Kelley is an excellent fit with SPX’s HVAC Heating platform that strengthens and accelerates our strategy in high-efficiency commercial boilers, and further enhances our product development capabilities. We look forward to the growth opportunities this transaction presents for employees and shareholders alike.”
Nick Grasberger, Chairman and CEO of Harsco Corporation, commented, “This transaction is a great outcome for Patterson-Kelley as it will become part of a diversified global company that appreciates and values the business and is committed to growing it for the benefit of its customers and employees.”
Patterson-Kelley is expected to have full-year 2019 revenue of approximately $35 million and a similar margin to SPX’s overall HVAC segment average. The acquisition is expected to have a minimal impact on SPX’s 2019 Adjusted EPS, after taking into account the partial fourth quarter of results and costs to finance the acquisition. SPX plans to provide detailed guidance for 2020 on its call to discuss Q4 2019 results in mid-February 2020.
