LaBarge seeks buyer for remaining ScadaNet portion


On March 31, LaBarge Inc. announced plans to divest the remainder of its ScadaNET Network™ remote equipment-monitoring business to
concentrate on core electronics manufacturing.


In November 2002, LaBarge sold the rail industry — and largest — portion of ScadaNET to GE Transportation Systems-Global Signaling L.L.C.


The remaining ScadaNET portion generates less than 1 percent of LaBarge's consolidated revenue.


"[We] intend to continue operating the ScadaNET Network business while seeking a suitable buyer," said LaBarge President and Chief Executive Officer Craig LaBarge in a prepared statement, adding that the company already has held preliminary discussions with a small number of prospective buyers.


ScadaNET is a wireless system designed to remotely monitor equipment scattered over large geographical areas.
