Thompson Coburn leads Federal Signal’s $110 million sale of FSTech to 3M

June 21, 2012

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.

Thompson Coburn partners Bob LaRose and Michele Kloeppel, and associate Greg Mennerick led work on the transaction for Federal Signal.

A multi-disciplinary team of Thompson Coburn tax, employment, commercial finance, and intellectual property attorneys supported work on the transaction.
