The acquisition is aimed to improve Nordson’s test and inspection platform and provide technology that can expand Nordson’s product portfolio in the semiconductor and electronics industries.

“We are looking forward to welcoming CyberOptics’ nearly 200 employees to Nordson.

The acquisition is an all-cash transaction which was valued at $54 a share or approximately $380 million in net cash acquired, which reflects a valuation of 18.5 times CyberOptics trailing twelve months EBITDA and 14.5 times net cost synergies. The transaction is expected to close in Nordson’s first quarter of fiscal 2023, which is pending applicable regulatory and shareholder approval.

With its headquarters in Minneapolis, Minnesota, CyberOptics’ revenue generation is approximately $100 million annually. Its sensors are often used for inspection and metrology in the semiconductor and surface mount technology markets to improve yields and productivity.
