"Da-Lite has a 100-year heritage of product innovation in the AV market," added Lundin. "Combining Da-Lite and Milestone allows us to continue our commitment to innovation while bringing the benefits and enhanced opportunities of increased global scale to our customers and employees."

A definitive merger agreement has been signed, and the transaction is expected to close within the next 30 days.
