Terex Corp. has signed a definitive agreement to sell its mining business to Bucyrus International Inc. for $1.3 billion in cash. The products to be divested by Terex in the transaction include hydraulic mining excavators, electric-drive mining trucks, track and rotary blasthole drills, and the highwall miner, as well as the related parts and aftermarket service businesses, including the company-owned distribution locations. Terex notes that the transaction, which is expected to close in the first quarter of 2010, accelerates its transformation from a construction and mining equipment company to a machinery and industrial products business.
