 December 17, 2012 04:26 PM

(By Balaseshan) Belden Inc. (NYSE: BDC), which provides signal transmission solutions for mission critical applications, said it has closed sale of its Thermax and Raydex businesses, and cut its guidance for the fourth quarter and full year 2012.

Belden has completed the sale of its Thermax and Raydex businesses, serving the aerospace and defense industry, to Carlisle Companies Inc. (NYSE: CSL) for about $265 million.

The results of these divested businesses will be classified as discontinued operations in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and therefore excluded from Belden's fourth quarter and full year 2012 results from continuing operations.
