3.              Business Acquisitions

 

We completed the acquisition of Coperion on December 1, 2012, in a transaction valued at $545.0.  The aggregate purchase consideration consisted of $269.1 of cash, net of cash acquired, and the assumption of $146.0 of debt and $129.9 of pension liabilities.  We utilized $426.3 of borrowings under our revolving credit facility and cash on hand to finance the acquisition, including the repayment of $146.0 of debt outstanding under Coperion’s prior financing arrangements.

 

This acquisition was the largest in the Company’s history and represented an important step in the execution of our strategic plans to further diversify Hillenbrand and accelerate the growth of the Process Equipment Group.  The integration of Coperion with the Process Equipment Group will continue to be a key initiative for the near term.  Combining our product offerings to provide a more complete system solution is an important part of our integration.  In addition, we believe leveraging Coperion’s global infrastructure will enable the existing businesses within the Process Equipment Group to enter new global markets more quickly.  We also expect the Process Equipment Group’s existing strong U.S. sales network will enhance Coperion’s expansion in North America.  Finally, the application of the Company’s Lean tools and other core competencies to Coperion’s operations is expected to contribute to improved margins and increased customer satisfaction.

Final purchase accounting adjustments were made during the first quarter of 2014 that increased goodwill ($7.3) and the accrued pension obligations ($4.3) based on finalization of the actuarial analysis for Coperion’s defined benefit plans.  In addition, adjustments were made to increase current liabilities ($1.3) and noncontrolling interests ($1.7).  In the second quarter of 2014, a $1.3 correction was made to the first quarter pension adjustment to decrease deferred income taxes resulting in total purchase accounting adjustments that increased goodwill by $6.0 in 2014.  These adjustments are reflected in the table above.
