Bel Finalizes Acquisition of TE Connectivity's Transpower Magnetics Business

Apr 08, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Bel Fuse Inc. announced that it has closed the previously announced acquisition of the Transpower magnetics business from TE Connectivity.

According to a release, Bel paid approximately $22.4 million in cash to acquire the business, which had trailing twelve month revenue of approximately $75 million and employs approximately 2,500 people at its 237,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Changping, China. The acquisition is expected to be accretive to Bel's earnings beginning in the second quarter of 2013.


Among the integrated connector module (ICM) products included in the Transpower acquisition are RJ45 connectors for 10/100, 1G, 10G and PoE/PoE+ capable, MRJ21 connectors, RJ.5 connectors and a line of modules for smart-grid applications and discrete magnetics. Bel also received a license to produce ICM products using TE's planar embedded magnetics technology.

Daniel Bernstein, Bel's President and CEO, said, "By solidifying Bel's position as a world leader in ICMs, this acquisition is a major step forward in our strategy to increase Bel's growth and profitability in both the short and long term.

"Trading under the name TRP International, we expect Bel's new division to double our sales of ICMs and related components. We also will benefit from various manufacturing, purchasing and engineering synergies that will enable us to further improve Bel's cost structure and enhance our competitive position in this market. By selecting Bel as the acquiring company, TE showed its confidence that Bel will provide the same high level of service to customers that continue to purchase from both our companies. Demonstrating our commitment to this goal, Bel will retain the Changping manufacturing facility and key associates who support the business unit." Houlihan Lokey Investment Bank and Stephens Inc. acted as financial advisors to Bel in the transaction.
