Dear Supplier,


I wanted to share the news that we are combining our business with Elkay Manufacturing.


Zurn Water Solutions Corporation and Elkay are a natural and cultural fit and have track records of commercial excellence. We are two premium complementary specified brands and share a combined 224-year history of best-in-class performance.


This is just the first step. The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter of 2022, subject to stockholder and regulatory approvals and the satisfaction of certain other customary closing conditions. 


Until then, it is business as usual and nothing will change about the way we work with you.


We remain focused on continuing to deliver the critical products and services on which our customers depend and maintaining close relationships with our suppliers is important to meeting that goal.


We will keep you updated at key milestones in the process.


Thank you for your continued loyalty and support of Zurn Water Solutions.

These factors include, among others: the inability to complete the Transaction, including due to the failure to receive required Zurn shareholder approvals or the failure of other closing conditions; the inability to recognize the anticipated benefits of the proposed Transaction, including the forecasted cost synergies; and costs related to the proposed Transaction. Except as required by law, we do not undertake any obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
