    ATLANTA, Ga., Aug. 18, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Chart Industries, Inc. (NYSE: GTLS) (“Chart”) announced that today it has closed its sale of the Roots business (“Roots”) to Ingersoll Rand Inc. (NYSE: IR) (“Ingersoll Rand”) for an all-cash purchase price of $300 million, representing an attractive low-teens adjusted EBITDA multiple. The proceeds from the sale are being used for debt paydown.

    Roots is a leading provider of low-pressure compression and vacuum technologies. As part of the transaction, Ingersoll Rand assumed ownership of the Connersville, Indiana (USA) manufacturing facility and is retaining approximately 300 team members.

    “The completion of the sale of Roots to Ingersoll Rand, a proven strategic partner to us, is a key step in the acceleration of our deleveraging plan,” stated Jill Evanko, Chart’s CEO and President. “This is one of many steps that allow us to anticipate reaching our target 2.5 to 2.9 net leverage ratio by the middle of 2024 as well as focusing on achieving our year-one annualized cost and commercial synergy targets of $175 million and $150 million, respectively.”

    The Roots business was moved to discontinued operations effective as of March 17, 2023.

    Chart’s banking covenant net leverage ratio as of June 30, 2023 was 3.86X, or 3.72X, on a pro forma basis after giving effect to the Roots divestiture and assuming approximately $80 million of cash from the previously announced Cofimco divestiture had been available for debt paydown.
