Ibadan, 27 March 2024. – Ingersoll Rand Inc. has entered into an agreement to acquire ILC Dover (ILC) from New Mountain Capital, LLC, a growth-oriented investment firm with approximately $50 billion in assets under management. The deal includes an upfront cash purchase price of approximately $2.325 billion and an earnout tied to the achievement of select operating efficiency metrics in 2024. At its maximum payout, the earnout increases the 17x upfront purchase multiple by less than one turn.

In connection with this acquisition, Ingersoll Rand will establish a life sciences platform within its P&ST segment, consisting of ILC plus Ingersoll Rand’s life science-focused brands. This includes Thomas, Welch, Zinsser Analytic, Tricontinent, Air Dimensions, and ILS. Furthermore, Corey Walker, ILC President and CEO, will lead the life sciences platform and join the Ingersoll Rand leadership team, reporting to Vicente Reynal, chairman and chief executive officer.

This platform will have approximately $700 million in revenue and will enable Ingersoll Rand to further focus its growth and investment in life sciences, a key strategic area for the company. Current P&ST segment leader Santiago Arias Duval will also continue to report to Reynal and lead a second platform within P&ST consisting of the remaining P&ST businesses, which represent approximately $1 billion in revenue.

Speaking on the acquisition, Vicente Reynal, Ingersoll Rand chairman and CEO, said, “This acquisition is the next phase of our long-term vision to expand into higher-growth end markets like life sciences. I am incredibly excited to partner with Corey and the outstanding team at ILC, whom we’ve admired for their innovative products and decades of experience in life sciences, to enhance our presence in key workflows and applications. Through ILC, we will get access to approximately 1,000 customers in the broader life science and healthcare sectors.”
