RTI International Metals Shining after Proposed Acquisition
Shares of RTI International Metals (NYSE: RTI) have been seeing much strength during Tuesday's trading session after the company announced a potential acquisition of Remmele Engineering.
RTI International Metals announced early this morning that it has entered into a stock purchase agreement under which it will acquire Remmele Engineering in a transaction valued at $182.5 million, with approximately $164.5 million in available cash and the assumption of approximately $18.0 million in debt.

Commenting on the event, President and CEO of RTI - Dawne S. Hickton - said, “I am pleased to have such a high quality organization become part of RTI. Remmele has a strong reputation among many of our shared aerospace and defense customers and holds the same standing in the medical device market."
