TTM Technologies has entered into an agreement to acquire Telephonics Corporation from Griffon Corporation, for $330m in cash.

Founded in 1933, Telephonics focuses on delivering intelligence, surveillance, and communications solutions for land, sea, and air applications. The company provides defence electronic solutions to the US and other allies.

The acquisition is expected to expand TTM’s aerospace and defence (A&D) product portfolio and increase international A&D customers. It will also improve TTM’s position in radar systems.

TTM CEO Tom Edman said: “I am excited for Telephonics to join TTM as we continue on our journey to move up the value chain and provide more engineered products to our offering for our customers.

“We expect that the complementary portfolio and skills will enhance TTM’s strategic capabilities and growth opportunities, enabling us to deliver significant benefits to our aerospace and defence customers. We also expect the transaction to be immediately accretive to our non-GAAP EPS.”

The divestment of Telephonics will strengthen Griffon’s balance sheet, and will enable it to focus on core businesses.
