Nordson Mulls Acquisitions

Nordson Corporation (NasdaqGS:NDSN) intends to make acquisitions. Mike Hilton, President and Chief Executive Officer of the company said: “We supplement our organic growth with strategic acquisitions. Our track record is one of acquiring good companies, improving their performance, and fueling their growth. Recently we have done just that with our acquisitions in the medical space. We are in the midst of doing the same with the suite of companies we have acquired in our polymer product line. While the polymer product line has faced some short-term headwinds in terms of demand driven by market dynamics, we expect performance will improve steadily and contribute long-term value to shareholders. Overall, we continue to develop our acquisition pipeline, and we have the financial and organizational capacity to continue to add properties that fit our strategy. As we look at our operating performance, we still see opportunities to improve margins. Our continuous improvement initiatives expand engineering, operations, marketing, sales, and functional areas. We also continue to accelerate and institute best practices across the Company. We're making good progress but have additional opportunity, especially in the acquired properties. Finally our business continues to generate a high level of cash, which gives us the ability to continue our multi-faceted capital deployment strategy. In addition to funding organic growth initiatives and strategic acquisitions, our strategy includes returning capital directly to shareholders. We have increased our dividend on average 20% over the last three years as we move to a more reasonable pay-out ratio.”
