Amphenol Corporation (NYSE: APH), a leading global provider of high-technology interconnect, antenna and sensor solutions, today announced a definitive agreement to acquire the Carlisle Interconnect Technologies (“CIT”) business of Carlisle Companies Incorporated (NYSE: CSL) for $2.025 billion in cash, subject to customary post-closing adjustments.

CIT is a leading global supplier of harsh environment interconnect solutions primarily to the commercial air, defense and industrial end markets, and is expected to have 2024 sales and adjusted EBITDA margin of approximately $900 million and 20%, respectively. The company’s wide range of products including wire and cable, cable assemblies, contacts, connectors and sensors are highly complementary to Amphenol’s existing interconnect and sensor solutions.

“We are excited to welcome CIT’s approximately 6,000 talented employees to the Amphenol family,” said Amphenol President and Chief Executive Officer, R. Adam Norwitt. “CIT’s highly engineered harsh environment interconnect solutions will allow us to deliver a more comprehensive technology solution for the increasingly complex applications of our customers in harsh environment markets. We look forward to benefiting from this enhanced position with these important customers in the commercial air, defense and industrial markets long into the future. In addition, we are excited by the possibilities created through the combination of Amphenol’s strong operating discipline and CIT’s advanced capabilities. We look forward to working together with CIT’s experienced management team to drive superior operating performance for the business as part of Amphenol. The addition of CIT represents another step forward for our long-term and successful acquisition program, which we believe will continue to create value for the Company long into the future.”

Assuming a continuation of current economic conditions, CIT is expected to be accretive to Amphenol’s earnings per share in the first year post closing, excluding acquisition-related costs. The acquisition of CIT will be financed through a combination of cash on hand as well as the Company’s existing credit and commercial paper facilities. The transaction is expected to be completed by the end of the second quarter of 2024 and is subject to certain regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions.
