Nano Dimension to Acquire Desktop Metal in a $183 Million All-Cash Deal - InsideArbitrage

3D printer maker Nano Dimension Ltd. (NNDM) on July 3, 2024, entered into a definitive agreement to acquire its peer Desktop Metal (DM) for $183 million in cash.

Mechanics of the Deal:

Under the terms of the deal, Nano Dimension will acquire Desktop Metal at a rate of $5.50 per share, representing a premium of 27.31% over the stock’s last close.

3D printer maker Nano Dimension Ltd. (NNDM) on July 3, 2024, entered into a definitive agreement to acquire its peer Desktop Metal (DM) for $183 million in cash.

However, the purchase price is subject to a few factors due to which it can fall to $4.07 per share, which will bring down the value of the deal to $135 million.

Desktop Metal expects transaction expenses to be around $11 million, which would decrease the price by approximately $0.44 per share, with a maximum reduction of $0.63 per share. If the transaction closing extends into 2025, Nano Dimension will provide Desktop Metal with a $20 million secured loan facility. While Desktop Metal does not anticipate using this facility, any amount drawn before closing will adjust the purchase price by up to $0.80 per share. If all reductions occur, the final price will be $4.07 per share, totaling $135 million.
