Dover has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Malema

Dover Corporation (“Dover”) announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Malema Engineering Corporation (“Malema”), a designer and manufacturer of high-precision, mission-critical flow-measurement and control instruments serving customers in the biopharmaceutical, semiconductor, and industrial sectors. Malema will become part of the PSG business unit within Dover’s Pumps & Process Solutions segment.

Malema’s products will expand Dover’s biopharma single-use production offering, which already includes Quattroflow pumps, CPC connectors, and em-tec flowmeters. Based in Boca Raton, Florida, with facilities in California, Singapore, South Korea and India, Malema expects to generate approximately $40-45 million in revenue during the full year 2022. The Company has generated double-digit average annual revenue growth over the last five years and maintains a robust growth outlook.

Over the past four decades, Malema has cultivated a loyal base of blue-chip customers, OEMs, and end-users with substantial aftermarket and recurring revenue streams. Malema’s first-of-its-kind single-use flow sensor uses Coriolis technology to deliver superior flow-measurement performance and accuracy, reducing the potential for measurement error and eliminating the need for calibration in time-sensitive and contamination-intolerant environments.

The purchase price is comprised of $225 million in cash at closing, subject to customary purchase price adjustments, and up to $50 million in contingent consideration dependent on the achievement of certain financial objectives over a two-year period.

Dover is a diversified global manufacturer and solutions provider with annual revenue of approximately $8 billion. The Company delivers innovative equipment and components, consumable supplies, aftermarket parts, software and digital solutions, and support services through five operating segments: Engineered Products, Clean Energy & Fueling, Imaging & Identification, Pumps & Process Solutions, and Climate & Sustainability Technologies.

PSG, part of the Pumps & Process Solutions segment of Dover Corporation, is a global pump solution expert and leading manufacturer of pumps, systems, and related flow-control technology for the safe and efficient transfer of critical and valuable fluids and materials. Headquartered in Oakbrook Terrace, IL, PSG is comprised of several world-class brands, including Abaque®, All-Flo®, Almatec®, Blackmer®, Ebsray®, em-tec®, Griswold®, Hydro Systems™, Mouvex®, Neptune™, Quantex™, Quattroflow®, and Wilden®.

EC M&A acted as financial advisor to Malema on this transaction.
