Ametek recommends stockholders reject mini-tender offer by TRC Capital

Ametek commented on an unsolicited mini-tender offer by TRC Capital to purchase up to 2M shares of Ametek common stock, representing approximately 0.88% of the outstanding shares of Ametek common stock. TRC's offer price of $79.50 per share was 4.18% lower than the closing price per share of Ametek common stock on March 29. Ametek does not endorse TRC's unsolicited mini-tender offer and is not associated in any way with TRC, its mini-tender offer or its mini-tender offer documents. Mini-tender offers, such as TRC's offer, seek to acquire less than 5% of a company's shares outstanding, thereby avoiding many disclosure and procedural requirements afforded to larger tender offers under the rules of the SEC.
