Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) has completed the previously announced sale of its Broadcast Communications business to an affiliate of The Gores Group, LLC for $225 million. The price includes $160 million in cash, a $15 million subordinated promissory note and an earnout of up to $50 million based on future performance.

“This is an exciting new chapter for Harris Broadcast, our employees and our customers,” said Harris Morris, CEO of Harris Broadcast. “The Gores Group is an ideal fit to help us move the business forward and help drive innovation, streamline operations and improve customer service. They will also provide us additional resources such as a flexible capital base and introduce new talent to the Company.”

Ryan Wald, Managing Director of The Gores Group added, “We anticipate great things from Harris Broadcast. The Company has proven technology, great products and an outstanding team. With our equity capital and guidance we are confident that Harris Broadcast will transition to a strong independent company that will continue to develop and deliver market leading technology and service to its customers.”
