Announced during the summer period, the acquisition of Desktop Metal is now official, following approval by a majority of ExOne’s shareholders. With this acquisition, Desktop Metal’s portfolio of companies now includes AIDRO, Aerosint, EnvisionTEC & Adaptive3D.
“This acquisition is a landmark moment for the additive manufacturing industry and creates an unmatched portfolio that strengthens Desktop Metal’s ability to accelerate the adoption of AM 2.0,” said Ric Fulop, Founder and CEO of Desktop Metal. “We are proud to welcome ExOne’s talented team to Desktop Metal and to move forward as one company focused on the mass production of end-use parts through AM. We’ve begun the process of careful integration with the goal of driving outsized growth for the combined company in the years to come. We believe Desktop Metal is uniquely positioned to provide the widest range of end-use applications, and we are excited about the value creation opportunity for our customers, partners, shareholders, and employees.”
Under the terms of the agreement, ExOne shareholders received $8.50 in cash and $16.43 in shares of Desktop Metal common stock for each share of ExOne common stock, for a total purchase price of approximately $24.93 per share, representing a transaction value of $561.3 million, including ExOne cash and cash equivalents, based on the 20-day volume weighted average price (VWAP) of Desktop Metal common stock on November 9, 2021. Desktop Metal and ExOne notified NASDAQ of the completion of the acquisition and requested that NASDAQ file a notification of delisting with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on ExOne’s behalf. Desktop Metal expects that the delisting of ExOne’s common stock from the NASDAQ stock exchange have become effective by on November 12, 2021.
ExOne will continue to operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of Desktop Metal and will remain headquartered in North Huntingdon, Pennsylvania.
