Autodesk completes acquisition of Moldflow

01 July 2008

Autodesk has completed its acquisition of Moldflow Corporation. Moldflow provides software that enables designers to predict and optimise how plastic components will perform during each phase of the design and manufacture process. Autodesk announced its intent to acquire Moldflow on May 1, 2008.

“Autodesk sees plastics and composites as some of the fastest-growing engineering materials,” said Carl Bass, Autodesk president and CEO. “Given its relatively low weight and durability, plastic materials are ideally suited to help our customers attain their sustainability initiatives. Moldflow, with its industry-leading plastics simulation, is a natural extension of Autodesk’s Digital Prototyping solution.”

Autodesk acquired Moldflow for $22 per share, or approximately $297 million, less the amount in Moldflow's cash balance and proceeds from options exercises.
