Dear Former Shareholder of K-Tron International, Inc.:
On April 1, 2010, Hillenbrand completed its acquisition of K-Tron International. As a result of this transaction, each share of K-Tron common stock outstanding at the close of business on April 1, 2010, was automatically cancelled and converted into the right to receive $150 per share in cash, without interest and subject to reduction for any required withholding taxes.
In seven to 10 business days after the acquisition, American Stock Transfer and Trust Company, LLC, sent registered holders of K-Tron common stock a letter of transmittal requesting the surrender of their K-Tron stock certificates. Those holding stock with a broker received cash in their accounts, generally two to seven days after the acquisition date. Exact dates vary by broker, so please contact your broker with questions.
If you have questions about your K-Tron shares or this process, please contact American Stock Transfer and Trust Company, LLC, at (877) 248-6417 or (718) 921-8317.
