RBC Bearings Acquires Sargent Aerospace & Defense for $500M

RBC Bearings has initiated their acquisition of Dover’s Sargent Aerospace & Defense by signing the $500 million deal. This is the first company to be acquired by RBC Bearings within the last 15 months, with the last being Western Precision Aero LLC, Climax Metal Products Company, and Turbine Components Inc. in 2013. Financed through cash and senior debts, the finalization of the acquisition looks to be completed in the fiscal first quarter of 2016.

The aerospace and defense revenues of RBC Bearings saw a decline in the last quarter due to contraction in their distribution activities. With the acquisition of Sargent Aerospace & Defense, RBC Bearings looks to strengthen their aerospace and defense trade and product portfolio. An estimated 25-35 cents per share of the company is expected to be contributed by the acquirement along with $7.5 million of synergies over the next five years.
