Caterpillar To Buy Mining-Equipment Company Bucyrus For $7.6 Billion

DOW JONES NEWSWIRES Caterpillar Inc. (CAT) said it will buy mining giant Bucyrus International Inc. (BUCY) for about $7.6 billion as the heavy-equipment giant looks to bolster its mining-equipment production. The deal comes as Caterpillar's fortunes have improved mightily the past year as construction and mining companies replenish equipment after cutting back in 2009. Under the agreement, Caterpillar will pay $92 for each Bucyrus shares--a 32% premium to Friday's closing price and an all-time high for the stock. Including debt, the deal's value is $8.6 billion. Caterpillar shares fell 1.4% to $79.92 in premarket action on the news after rising 42% this year through Friday. Joy Global Inc. (JOYG), which was eclipsed by Bucyrus as the world's biggest mining-equipment maker following a recent acquisition by Bucyrus, rose 9.8% to $79.48. "For several years, mining customers have been asking us to expand our range of products and services to better serve their increasingly complex requirements," said Caterpillar Chairman and Chief Executive Doug Oberhelman. "This announcement says to those customers, we heard you loud and clear." The deal, which expected to close in mid-2011, will be funded through a combination of cash, debt and up to $2 billion in equity. Caterpillar said it will keep the mining-business headquarters in South Milwaukee, Wis., where Bucyrus is currently headquartered, and it will maintain the brand. In October, Bucyrus said its third-quarter earnings fell 16% as its underground-mining income slipped. Meanwhile, Caterpillar's profit nearly doubled as machinery sales jumped sharply from last year's moribund levels. -By Nathan Becker, Dow Jones Newswires; 212-416-2855;
