Lincoln International Represents The Vitec Group plc in its Acquisition of Haigh-Farr Inc.
Lincoln International, a leading global mid-market investment bank, acted as the exclusive financial advisor to The Vitec Group plc (“Vitec”), a UK, publicly-traded provider of products and services for the international broadcast, photographic, and MAG (military, aerospace and government) markets in its recently announced acquisition of Haigh-Farr, Inc. (“Haigh-Farr”). Haigh-Farr, based in Bedford, NH, has over thirty years of experience in the design and manufacture of flight-body antennas for leading US government prime contractors.
Lincoln International worked closely through its London and Los Angeles offices with Vitec’s management to identify Haigh-Farr based on its attractive technology, and complementary end markets, and to ensure the successful outcome of the transaction. The acquisition of Haigh-Farr represents an important strategic development for Vitec’s Integrated Microwave Technologies business unit, which specializes in innovative digital microwave solutions for defense, security and law enforcement applications.
Lincoln International leveraged the extensive experience of its Aerospace and Defense team as well as its significant cross-border capabilities to ensure a successful outcome for Vitec.
