ABSTRACT
This article reports on the acquisition of Cogent Systems, a provider of biometric software matching systems and hardware, by 3M Corp. The transaction is valued at 430 million U.S. dollars. Particular focus is given to the terms of the acquisition deal. According to analyst Josephine Millward of Benchmark Co., the deal's price was surprising because it values Cogent at less than the minimum earnings multiple of comparable acquisitions in the homeland security and defense market.
