CommScope, Inc. (NYSE: CTV), a global leader in infrastructure solutions for communications networks, has completed the previously announced divestiture of its minority interest in Andes Industries, Inc.

Pursuant to the agreement approved by the US Department of Justice, CommScope has transferred its equity and other financial interests in Andes and its affiliates, as well as certain other related assets, to Andes, and each of the parties has released all claims against each other, including claims relating to prior transactions between Andrew Corporation and Andes. Andes also will make payments of up to $16 million to CommScope, but only upon the occurrence of certain extraordinary events, such as the sale of Andes to a third party, during a two-year period following the completion of the agreement. The divestiture complies with terms of the settlement agreement among CommScope, Andrew and the DOJ that allowed CommScope to complete its acquisition of Andrew in December 2007.
