ICx to be Acquired by FLIR Systems

ICx Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq GM:ICXT) has entered into a definitive merger agreement with FLIR Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:FLIR) which would see ICx acquired through a cash tender offer, followed by a merger with a subsidiary of FLIR, for a price of $7.55 per share in cash.

According to the firm, “ICx's Board of Directors has unanimously approved the merger agreement and the transactions contemplated by the merger agreement, and has resolved to recommend that ICx's stockholders tender their shares in connection with the tender offer. In addition, certain affiliates of Wexford Capital LP have agreed to tender approximately 62% of ICx's outstanding shares in the tender offer, subject to the ICx Board of Directors’ continued recommendation of the transaction. The closing of the tender offer is subject to certain customary conditions, including the tender of at least a majority of ICx's shares outstanding on a fully diluted basis and antitrust clearance. The merger agreement contemplates that the merger would be completed shortly following completion of the tender offer if a ‘short form’ merger is available under Delaware law. If a short form merger is not available, then the merger would be completed after approval of the merger at a stockholders’ meeting, which would held as soon as reasonably permissible under Delaware law and applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission.”
