Sparton Corp. has announced that, as part of its previously announced exploration of strategic alternatives, its Board of Directors has authorized Wells Fargo Securities, LLC to conduct a process to identify parties interested in acquiring the entire company. This decision was made after carefully considering a number of options presented by Wells Fargo upon the completion of their strategic alternative review engagement. The company is working with Wells Fargo to prepare the necessary marketing materials and expects to begin engaging with interested parties by the end of June.
The Board noted that there can be no assurance that this process will result in the announcement or consummation of any transaction. The company has not set a definitive timetable for the completion of this process and does not intend to disclose further developments until the Board determines it appropriate to do so.
