Thompson Coburn served as outside counsel in Federal Signal Corporation’s pending $110 million sale of its intelligent transportation technology business to 3M.
Federal Signal announced today that it has signed a definitive agreement to sell its FSTech business, which focuses on electronic toll collection, parking management hardware, and software services.
St. Paul, Minn.-based 3M Company will pay cash in the deal, which is expected to close in the second half of 2012. Federal Signal said in a press release that it intends to use the proceeds from the transaction primarily to reduce debt.
A multi-disciplinary team of Thompson Coburn tax, employment, commercial finance, and intellectual property attorneys supported work on the transaction.
