WAUKEGAN, Ill., May 2, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Coleman Cable, Inc. (Nasdaq:CCIX) ("Coleman" or "CCI"), a leading manufacturer and innovator of electrical and electronic wire and cable products, announced today that it has completed the acquisition of the assets of First Capitol Wire & Cable ("First Capitol"), as well as the assets of Continental Wire & Cable ("Continental") for a total purchase price of $7.15 million.
First Capitol and Continental are leading manufacturers of industrial wire and cable products used across a number of commercial, utility and industrial end-markets. Both companies have a long-established history of providing customers with high-quality custom wire and cable products, including First Capitol's design and production of a broad line of high-temperature wire and cable products used in OEM applications, as well as within a number of applications for the energy, commercial and industrial end markets.
"These two acquisitions represent a great opportunity for Coleman to expand its current product offering and build on our growing reputation for producing a wide assortment of high-quality industrial cables," said Gary Yetman, president and chief executive officer of Coleman. "Further, they allow us to immediately expand our capabilities, product offerings and capacity in serving the growing needs of our industrial end-market customers which continue to be a significant component of our overall platform."
First Capitol and Continental, both based in York, Pennsylvania, were privately-held entities under common ownership prior to the acquisition of their assets by Coleman Cable. The acquisition of the assets of these two companies, whose combined sales were in excess of $10 million for 2010, were structured as all-cash transactions, both of which closed on April 29, 2011. Coleman anticipates that the assets acquired from the combined companies, primarily inventory and production machinery and equipment, will contribute approximately $0.10 to $0.15 in GAAP earnings per diluted share in 2012, while being earnings neutral or slightly accretive for the balance of 2011.
