NOVI, Mich., June 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Cooper-Standard Holdings Inc. (NYSE: CPS), the parent company of Cooper-Standard Automotive Inc. ("Cooper Standard"), today announced that Cooper Standard has entered into an agreement with Halla Visteon Climate Control Corp. ("HVCC") (KS: 018880) to sell HVCC its thermal and emissions product line. The company said the sale allows Cooper Standard to focus on the product lines where it holds a leading market position and can gain the greatest competitive advantage.

"A strategic decision was made to divest our thermal and emissions product line and allow the company to focus resources on our four core product groups: sealing and trim, fuel and brake delivery, fluid transfer and anti-vibration systems," said Jeffrey Edwards, chairman and CEO, Cooper Standard. "We will work closely with HVCC to ensure a smooth transition."

Cooper Standard products, including exhaust gas recirculation modules, electronic coolant pumps and valves, electronic wastegate actuators and electronic throttle bodies, as well as related assets from operations in North America, Germany, France and the Czech Republic along with certain engineering and other resources in North America and Germany are intended to transfer to existing HVCC locations over the next several months as a part of the transaction.

The sale is subject to adjustment, certain regulatory and other approvals and is expected to be finalized in the third quarter of 2014.
