New York, February 25, 2013 — Curtis, Mallet-Prevost, Colt & Mosle LLP represented MSC Industrial Direct Co., Inc. (NYSE: MSM) in connection with the negotiation of a definitive agreement to acquire the North American distribution business of Barnes Group Inc. (NYSE: B). The acquisition, which is structured as an asset purchase, is scheduled to close in late March or early in the second quarter. The purchase price will be $550 million, subject to adjustment.
MSC, with the acquisition, will add a highly complementary provider of fasteners and other high margin consumable products and services (often referred to as Class C items) with an industry-leading field sales force and vendor managed inventory ('VMI') solution. MSC expects that the transaction will nearly double its existing sales force.

MSC employs one of the industry's largest sales forces and distributes approximately 600,000 industrial products from approximately 3,000 suppliers.
