Carlisle to Sell German Rubber Components Unit

November 22, 2011

CHARLOTTE, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Carlisle Companies Incorporated (NYSE:CSL) today announced the signing of a definitive agreement to sell the non-roofing and waterproofing unit of its German company, PDT Phoenix GmbH (“PDT”), to the Datwyler Group of Altdorf, Switzerland. The business unit makes elastomer profiles for use in applications for tunnels, rail, windows and facades and was acquired as part of Carlisle’s acquisition of PDT on August 1, 2011. Sales of the divested unit are approximately €35 million. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed. Carlisle will retain the roofing and waterproofing business as the European center for Carlisle Construction Materials.

The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including obtaining regulatory approvals, and is expected to close by January 2, 2012.

David A. Roberts, Carlisle’s Chairman, President and CEO, said “The sale of PDT’s profiles and frames unit will allow us to focus our resources on our core European roofing and waterproofing business, which has continued to exhibit solid growth since our purchase in August. Under Datwyler, the customers and employees of PDT’s profiles and frames unit will have a strategic owner with experience in the non-roofing sectors served by PDT. This is an excellent transaction for all parties.”
