Australia's Boral Picks up U.S. Building Products Supplier Headwaters
TheStreet.comNovember 21, 2016
Building products provider Headwaters (HW) said Sunday that it has agreed to be acquired by Australian construction materials supplier Boral for $24.25 per share, or $2.6 billion, in cash. Per the terms of the agreement, Headwaters' shareholders will receive $24.25 per share in cash, representing a roughly 21% premium to the target's closing $20.09 per share stock price on Nov. 18, and a 34% premium over its 30-day volume-weighted average closing stock price through Nov. 18. The deal comes after a recent acquisition spree for South Jordan, Utah-based Headwaters, which scooped up Dallas-based vinyl and aluminum windows and patio doors manufacturer Krestmark Industries in August for $240 million.
