BERYWYN, Penn. - AMETEK, Inc. announced that it has completed its acquisition of Zygo Corporation for $19.25 per share in cash per fully diluted common share, or approximately $280 million net of cash acquired. The completion of the transaction follows approval from Zygo shareholders and the receipt of all regulatory approvals.

“We are pleased to announce the closing of this highly strategic transaction and are excited to welcome the Zygo team to AMETEK,” said Frank S. Hermance, AMETEK Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Zygo’s leading position in non-contact optical metrology nicely complements our strength in contact metrology and will enable us to offer our customers a full range of metrology solutions.”
