TE Connectivity announced that it has completed the divestiture of its Broadband Network Solutions (BNS) business to CommScope for $3.0 billion.
"Our strategy is focused on strengthening our leadership position in connectivity and sensor solutions, with an emphasis on harsh environment applications," said TE Connectivity Chairman and CEO Tom Lynch. "With the sale, 90 percent of our sales are derived from the attractive connectivity and sensor markets, and over 80 percent address harsh environments applications. These markets have strong underlying growth drivers as customers develop innovative products to meet the demands of a smarter, greener, safer and more connected world. We want to thank the BNS team for their leadership over the years, and wish them continued success as part of the CommScope team."
