TE Connectivity buying underwater connector firm for $490M


TE Connectivity (TEL +2.7%) is acquiring the Seacon Group, a maker of underwater electrical connectors, for $490M in cash. The deal is expected to close in TE's FY14 (ends Sep. '14).

Seacon's connectors are used in underwater/remotely-operated vehicles, as well as in oil/gas, environmental, and oceanographic applications.

TE says the deal strengthens its position in oil/gas (a growing market), and that the combination of Seacon's fiber optic offerings with TE's cable and power connector products will "create a leading product offering for undersea applications."
