Sensata Technologies to Buy Schrader in $1 Billion Deal

Monday, 18 Aug 2014 07:28 AM

Sensors and electrical controls maker Sensata Technologies Holding NV said it would buy Schrader group of companies for an enterprise value of $1 billion to benefit from a growing market for tire pressure monitoring sensors.

Schrader International, held by private equity firm Madison Dearborn Partners LLC, makes the device to alert drivers when a tire is under-inflated. The sensor is now standard for all cars in North America, and is being increasingly used in Europe and Asia.

Denver-headquartered Schrader sells sensors in the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, China, Japan and South Korea. It employs 2,500 people and is expected to generate $550 million in revenue this year, Sensata said.

Netherlands-based Sensata said it expects the deal to add 13-16 cents per share to its adjusted earnings in 2014.

Barclays Bank Plc. and Morgan Stanley Senior Funding Inc have committed to finance the deal, expected to close in the fourth quarter.
