February 5, 2020 GMT

BRISTOL, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 5, 2020--

Barnes Group Inc. (NYSE: B), a global provider of highly engineered products, differentiated industrial technologies, and innovative solutions, today announced it has completed the divestiture of its Seeger-Orbis (“Seeger”) business to the Kajo Neukirchen Group.

Seeger, formerly part of Barnes Group’s Engineered Components strategic business unit within the Industrial Segment, develops and produces a comprehensive range of retaining rings, fasteners, snap rings and shims and generates annual revenues of approximately $60 million.

Barnes Group anticipates an approximate $0.10 net impact to 2020 earnings per share from Seeger’s forgone operating profit contribution, partially offset by interest savings from reduced debt with redeployment of the sale proceeds.
