Kratos Defense & Security Solutions has completed the previously announced sale of the U.S. and U.K. operations of its Electronic Products Division to Ultra Electronics Holdings plc for $260 million in cash plus up to $5 million for taxes incurred as part of the transaction, less a $2.0 million escrow to satisfy any purchase price adjustments and a working capital adjustment currently estimated as a net reduction of $7.6 million.
