Intermec, a leading provider of data capture and information management solutions, today announced a definitive agreement under which Honeywell International will acquire Intermec for $10.00 per share in an all-cash transaction valued at approximately $600 million.

“We are pleased that Honeywell recognizes and values the capabilities as well as the strategic potential of our business,” said Allen J. Lauer, Intermec chairman and interim CEO. “Our Board conducted a thoughtful and comprehensive strategic review of Intermec’s business with the goal of determining the best possible overall outcome for our stakeholders. The agreement with Honeywell not only maximizes value for our stockholders, it combines our history of innovation and engineering expertise, global reach and leading products and solutions with the significant global scale and resources of Honeywell.”

Under the terms of the agreement, which has been approved by both companies’ Boards of Directors, Honeywell will acquire all of the outstanding common shares of Intermec for $10.00 per share in cash. The transaction represents a 48% premium to Intermec’s closing stock price on November 1, 2012, the last trading day prior to Intermec announcing it had retained BofA Merrill Lynch. The transaction, which is subject to the approval of Intermec stockholders, regulatory approvals and customary closing terms and conditions, is expected to close by the end of the second quarter 2013.

In light of today’s announcement, the Company is suspending its previously announced search for a permanent Chief Executive Officer. BofA Merrill Lynch is serving as exclusive financial advisor, and Perkins Coie LLP is serving as legal counsel, to Intermec.
