API Nanotronics Corp. (OTCBB: APIO) ("API") (the "Company") is pleased to announce the closing of the acquisition of National Hybrid Inc. and its subsidiary Pace Technology Inc. National Hybrid is a privately held New York-based company specializing in critical components for the US defense sector. API Nanotronics acquired 100% of the shares of National Hybrid for $9.75 million in cash at closing.
Phillip DeZwirek, Chairman and CEO of API, stated, "This acquisition significantly strengthens API's product offerings and enhances our research and manufacturing capabilities as we embark on our next phase of growth in Nanotechnology. The acquisition also doubles API's revenue and further solidifies the company as a key supplier of critical electronic components to the US Department of Defense (DoD) and leading defense contractors."
National Hybrid specializes in the manufacturing of 1553 Data Bus products, Solid State Power Controllers, High Density Multi Chip Modules and custom state-of-the-art Hybrid Microcircuits. National Hybrid's customers include Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, the Department Of Defense, and many others.
National Hybrid is in the process of completing an advanced Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) production and micro-fabrication facility that will house state-of-the-art research and development capabilities in nanotechnology. Upon completion, it is anticipated that the facility will be one of the most modern MEMS micro-fabrication plants in North America.
Mr. DeZwirek further stated, "The combination with National Hybrid will allow API Nanotronics to pursue its goal of diversifying into products based on MEMS and nanotechnology. This acquisition makes API Nanotronics a one-stop shop for the most sophisticated design requirements of the leading defense contractors. Current customers have already expressed interest in working with API to develop next-generation products based on its newly acquired MEMS capabilities. We believe this acquisition puts API in a very positive position to achieve our growth objectives."
