The consideration consists of a cash payment of £13.0 million (subject to the repayment of intra-group debt) and is subject to a working capital adjustment at completion. The proceeds of the transaction will be retained within Filtronic’s general corporate resources. The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and to the Secretary of State for Defence not referring the transaction to the Office of Fair Trading before the date of completion. The transaction is expected to complete by the end of August 2008.
