Item 2.01. Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.
On January 5, 2021, TransDigm Group Incorporated (“TransDigm Group” or the "Company") has completed substantially all of its acquisition of Cobham Aero Connectivity (“CAC”). The acquisition of CAC for an aggregate purchase price of $965 million (including tax benefits to be realized by TransDigm Group) 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. CAC 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. CAC has a strong presence across a diverse range of both helicopters and fixed wing aircraft. CAC operates from two primary facilities in Marlow, UK and Prescott, Arizona and 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.
