January 2, 2016 - Honeywell acquires the Elster division of Melrose Industries. Elster is a provider of thermal gas solutions for commercial, industrial, and residential heating systems and gas, water, and electricity meters, including smart meters and software and data analytics solutions.
The acquisition, which Honeywell announced on July 28, 2015, closed earlier than anticipated following approval by Melrose shareholders and required regulatory approvals, including those in the U.S., European Union, and China.
“The acquisition of Elster adds outstanding technologies, strong well-recognized brands, energy efficiency know-how, and a global presence to the Honeywell portfolio,” said Honeywell Chairman and CEO Dave Cote. “We see Elster as a great opportunity to deploy HOS Gold to drive new growth and greater profitability in each of Elster’s businesses. This acquisition is expected to generate strong future returns for our shareowners, consistent with what you have come to expect from Honeywell.”
Elster’s gas heating and gas, water, and electricity metering businesses will be integrated with
Honeywell’s Environmental & Energy Solutions business (E&ES), part of Honeywell Automation and Control Solutions. Elster’s upstream and midstream gas applications businesses will be integrated with Honeywell Process Solutions, within Honeywell Performance Materials and Technologies.
There is no change to the Company’s 2015 or 2016 financial guidance provided on December 16 as a result of the announcement.
