Hutchinson Technology merger takes step forward

McLEOD COUNTY, MN – A pending merger between Hutchinson Technology, Inc. and TDK Corporation took a step forward today (Sept. 22), with an early end to a legal waiting period.

The termination of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976 satisfies one of the remaining conditions to the closing of the pending merger, according to a company press release.

As of Aug. 21, 2016, HTI’s level of cash (subject to certain adjustments) less any outstanding borrowings on its revolving line of credit, was approximately $47.1 million. Based this position, TDK plans to acquire all outstanding shares of common stock of HTI for $4 per share.

The merger is currently expected to close no later than Oct. 5, and remains subject to other customary closing conditions set forth in the merger agreement.
