Although the terms of the business and the value of the transaction are not yet known, it transpired that the Belden Group plans to integrate SAM with Grass Valley and leave all the product lines under the name of the latter. Tim Shoulders will be the president and CEO of both companies after their union and its headquarters will continue to be in Montreal, Canada.
