MKS Instruments Seeks Acquisitions

Seth Bagshaw, Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer of MKS Instruments, Inc. (NasdaqGS:MKSI) said, "I'll do capital deployment and the M&A." Gerry Colella, President, Chief Executive Officer and Director said, "Over the last several years, we have continued to look for good value companies in our space. And so the strategy going forward is if we saw a company in our space that was sizable transformative, that's fine. We'd be willing to look at whatever we need to do to leverage the Company, cash in stock, whatever. But it would have to be somebody we know, somebody we know that is a well-run company, good return. We'd understand the EBITDA and we pay fair value for that. And we continue to see opportunities because there's still more consolidation, we think, that can occur."
