We expect the Merger will bring together complementary leaders in water and fluid solutions, valves and controls, and equipment protection products to create a premier industrial growth company. The Tyco flow control business had net revenue and operating income for its fiscal year ended September 30, 2011 of $3.6 billion and $296 million, respectively.
