Emerson (NYSE: EMR) today announced that it has agreed to divest its Connectivity Solutions business unit to Bel Fuse, Inc. (NASDAQ: BELF.A and BELF.B). The transaction, valued at $98 million, is expected to close before the end of the fiscal year, with proceeds deployed for incremental share repurchase in 2014.
Currently a part of Emerson’s Network Power business, with 2013 revenue of more than $80 million, Connectivity Solutions is based in Bannockburn, Illinois.
