ITT Corporation to Acquire International Motion Control

ITT Corporation announced it has executed an agreement to acquire privately held International Motion Control (IMC) for $395 million. IMC is a global developer of motion control products with 2006 revenues of approximately $200 million. The transaction, which is subject to normal closing conditions, is expected to be completed in the third quarter.

"The IMC acquisition aligns exceedingly well with our strategy to grow the ITT Motion and Flow Control business globally. IMC adds a complementary mix of highly engineered, mission-critical products to expand our core capabilities in specialty energy absorption and motion control applications," said Steve Loranger, chairman, president and chief executive officer of ITT. "We look forward to welcoming IMC's talented workforce and strong customer base to the ITT family."

IMC is a manufacturer of specialty energy absorption, industrial and aviation control and automation technology under the brand names of Burny, Enidine, Compact Automation, CMC, and Midland-ACS, among others.

"For more than four decades, our customers have known IMC for its technological expertise, problem-solving approach and exemplary customer service," said Patrick Lee, chairman and chief executive officer of IMC. "We found ITT to share these core characteristics and together expect to continue this tradition as we enter this exciting new chapter in our history."
