DURA Automotive Systems, Inc. Announces Agreement To Sell Atwood Mobile Products

DURA Automotive Systems, Inc. announced that it has entered into an asset purchase agreement with Atwood Acquisition Co., LLC for the sale of DURA’s Atwood Mobile Products division, headquartered in Elkhart, Indiana.

The agreement provides for the acquisition of Atwood Mobile Products for an aggregate cash consideration of $160.2 million. Closing of the transaction is subject to the approval of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware, which has jurisdiction over DURA’s Chapter 11 reorganization proceedings; government regulatory approvals; and customary closing conditions. Dura was advised by Miller Buckfire and Kirkland & Ellis in connection with the transaction.

As a standard element of the bankruptcy process, DURA has filed a motion with the Bankruptcy Court seeking approval of procedures that will provide an opportunity for competitive bids on Atwood Mobile Products before the sale is approved by the Court. DURA expects to complete the bidding process and to secure the regulatory approvals in time to close the sale by the end of August.

“Atwood is a strong, profitable and growing business, and we are extremely satisfied with the interest we have received in the business,” said Larry Denton, DURA’s chairman and chief executive officer. “This agreement is a major milestone in our restructuring efforts as it enables the company to position itself to exit Chapter 11 and finish implementing financial and operational strategies to improve our core automotive parts business.”
