Wabtec Corp. has acquired majority ownership of Faiveley Transport S.A., after completing the purchase of the Faiveley family’s stake, which represented about 51% of the company’s shares outstanding. Wabtec plans to launch a tender offer for the remaining public shares in December.
 
Faiveley Transport is a global provider of value-added, integrated systems and services for the railway industry with annual sales of about $1.2 billion.

Wabtec now expects to realize at least $50 million in annual pre-tax synergies from the combination by year three, and the transaction will be accretive to Wabtec’s earnings per diluted share in 2017.
