In his message to customers Joseph P Keithley (President and Chief Executive Officer, Keithley Instruments, Inc.) informed about sales agreement whereby Tektronix will purchase Keithley. The acquisition was announced on September 29, 2010, and is expected to be completed by the end of 2010. The message is published at www.keithley.com/message.
Although the acquisition requires the satisfaction of customary closing conditions, including the receipt of regulatory approvals and adoption of the merger agreement by Keithley’s shareholders, once it is officially complete, we look forward to having these two great companies work closely together for their shared and increased success. The acquisition is expected to be completed by the end of 2010.
Both Keithley and Tektronix have a 64-year-long history of leadership in the test and measurement industry. The addition of Keithley to the Tektronix family creates a more robust toolset for our customers, since the combined product portfolio immediately enhances the range and depth of the solutions for the customers.
Keithley will go on supplying you with the leading-edge offerings and exceptional customer service that you have come to expect. Please continue to contact Keithley for assistance with your Keithley products.
