Dana To Acquire Part Of Modine’s Thermal Business

The transaction further strengthens Dana’s Power Technologies business unit.

Dana Incorporated announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to purchase a portion of the thermal-management business of Modine Manufacturing Co.’s automotive segment.

The transaction further strengthens Dana’s Power Technologies business unit, the company said. The agreed purchase price is $1 with the assumption of certain financial liabilities.

Subject to customary regulatory approvals and other closing conditions, the transaction is expected to be completed in the first half of 2021 and will be consolidated within Dana’s Power Technologies segment.

The acquisition balances the company’s current product portfolio by extending its offerings in chillers and water-charged air coolers, adding exhaust-gas recirculation, and expanding its manufacturing process capabilities, according to Maumee, Ohio-based Dana.

The transaction brings numerous benefits to Dana, including:

  • Adding approximately $300 million in revenue based on 2019 results, and is expected to contribute $30 million in adjusted EBITDA on a post-synergy basis
  • Increasing the scale of Dana’s Power Technologies business by approximately 30%, balancing the product portfolio with expanded thermal content, and leveraging complementary manufacturing processes and supply chains
  • Accelerating the company’s electrification strategy with electric-vehicle thermal technologies, a key source of market growth
  • Strengthening relationships with new and existing light-vehicle manufacturers
  • Diversifying the global geographic footprint of Dana’s Power Technologies operations in the United States, Europe and Asia

“Dana’s in-house engineering and manufacturing of thermal-management technologies is an important differentiator, and this acquisition is synergistic to our current portfolio, making it a natural fit for our Power Technologies business,” said James Kamsickas, Dana chairman and CEO. “In addition to strengthening relationships with core customers in Europe and Asia, it presents opportunities to leverage our scale to expand business with new mobility manufacturers and optimize the business to deliver significant value to our shareholders.”

This acquisition includes eight major facilities with operations in China, Germany, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands and the United States. The business serves a global roster of original-equipment and new mobility vehicle manufacturers.

Citigroup Global Markets, Hunton Andrews Kurth and Hogan Lovells served as advisers to Dana.
