TransDigm completes acquisition of Cobham Aero Connectivity
Tuesday, 5 January 2021

TransDigm Group Incorporated announced it has completed substantially all of its acquisition of Cobham Aero Connectivity ("CAC" or "the Company"). The acquisition of CAC for an aggregate purchase price of $965 million (including tax benefits to be realized by TransDigm) was previously announced on November 24, 2020. The acquisition was financed through cash on hand.

Cobham Aero Connectivity is headquartered in Marlow, UK. CAC is a leading provider of highly engineered antennas and radios for the aerospace end market. The products are primarily proprietary with significant aftermarket content and have a strong presence across major defense platforms as well as select commercial applications. The Company generated approximately $225 million in revenue for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020. Nearly 60% of CAC's revenue is derived from international sales and over 70% of CAC's revenue comes from the aftermarket. The Company has a strong presence across a diverse range of both helicopters and fixed wing aircraft. The Company operates from two primary facilities in Marlow, UK and Prescott, Arizona. CAC employs approximately 760 people.

A portion of the CAC acquisition representing approximately 2% of the total purchase price remains subject to Finnish regulatory approval and is expected to close in the coming weeks.
