Allied's Last Acquisition

Allied's last acquisition agreement was in January 2016. The Company completed the acquisition of Heidrive GmbH, a Germany-based drive technology and engineering Company, for €20 million (approximately US$22 million). This acquisition provided Allied with many opportunities to advance its growth strategy through new markets, customers, products, and capabilities. The deal also brought Heidrive's complementary product lines and additional technical competencies in customized motor and system solutions to Allied, and also helped the latter to expand its sales footprint and customer base in the German market. The agreement was previously announced in December 2015.

Allied Received Awards for Vehicle Market Solution in 2017

In December 2017, Allied won the nomination for an approximate $65 million award to provide a customer-specific solution for the Company's Vehicle market in Asia and Europe. Revenue for the application is expected to begin ramping up in 2021 and be substantially completed in 2028. This award is in addition to the previously received Vehicle market award of $90 million in May 2017, bringing the total to $155 million received in 2017, an average of approximately $22.1 million per year during a full seven-year period.
