Posted by Hill and Griffith Company on Apr 11, 2017 3:32:35 PM

This week's post is from Apr 10, 2017 Robert Brooks' news release in FOUNDRY Magazine's web site, "American Axle Completes $3.3B Takeover of MPG, including Grede Green Sand Foundry."

American Axle & Manufacturing Holdings Inc. has completed its takeover of Metaldyne Performance Group Inc. (MPG), a deal announced last November and now estimated to be worth $3.3 billion in cash and debt acquisition. 

AAM reportedly paid $1.6 billion in cash and stock and acquired $1.7 billion in net debt from MPG’s owner, private-equity group American Securities LLC. The directors and shareholders of both firms reportedly gave unanimous approval to the transaction.

While the AAM organization consists mainly of forging and machining operations, the MPG portfolio includes the Grede Foundry iron foundries and finish machining plants, in the U.S. and Mexico.
