The integration of IMI into our organization is progressing, and we are excited about the potential it brings us. We have a long and successful track record of integrating acquisitions, and we look forward to an accelerated and fruitful process. We are confident that this acquisition will bring many synergies across the organization that will improve our position globally and will further increase value to our shareholders over the long term.”
