Cobham completes acquisition of Aeroflex

Published: 15th September 2014

Following the receipt of regulatory and shareholder approvals Cobham has now successfully completed its acquistion of Aeroflex.

Cobham Chief Executive Officer Bob Murphy said: “We are pleased to welcome Aeroflex into the Cobham family of businesses. The combination of our technology companies is absolutely aligned with our strategic objective of building and maintaining leading positions in selected higher growth, commercially oriented end markets that increasingly demand more data, connectivity and bandwidth.”

Roughly 70% of Aeroflex's revenue is focused on commercial markets including wireless, space, microelectronics, industrial, energy and other sectors. This will increase the proportion of Cobham’s commercial revenue from 35 percent to some 42 percent of the total, on a pro forma basis, and builds on Cobham’s focus on connectivity capabilities, customers and characteristics.

Aeroflex operations will become part of Cobham’s Advanced Electronic Solutions and Communications and Connectivity sectors. With its acquistion of Aeroflex Cobham expects to achieve significant synergy benefits as well as increased shareholder value and even more effective customer support.
