Timet has been a subsidiary of ELIT Acquisition Sub Corp., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Precision Castparts, since December 21, 2012.

As a result of the merger, Timet common stock will cease to be traded on the New York Stock Exchange.
On November 9, 2012, Precision Castparts and Timet had signed a definitive merger agreement, by which the tender offer would be made.
