 IDEX SIGNS DEFINITIVE AGREEMENT TO PURCHASE ASSETS
 OF PULSAFEEDER SUBSIDIARY OF EAGLE INDUSTRIES
 NORTHBROOK, Ill., April 10 /PRNewswire/ -- IDEX Corp. (NYSE: IEX) today announced that it had entered into a definitive agreement for IDEX to purchase the assets of the Pulsafeeder, Inc. subsidiary of Eagle Industries, Inc.
 Earlier this week IDEX had announced the signing of a preliminary agreement. Pulsafeeder, headquartered in Rochester, N.Y., is a manufacturer of specialty pumps, controls, and systems for the process industries and a variety of other markets, with annual sales of approximately $50 million. It has manufacturing operations in Rochester; Punta Gorda, Fla.; and Muskogee, Okla.
 The transaction, which is subject to certain conditions, will close within the next three to four weeks. Eagle Industries will receive $66 million in cash and 75,000 shares of IDEX common stock for the Pulsafeeder business. IDEX said that Pulsafeeder would significantly strengthen the company's position in the fluid handling industry. In 1991, the Fluid Handling Group of IDEX accounted for approximately 60 percent of total sales of $228.2 million. The transaction is not expected to be dilutive but could add several cents in earnings per share in the first year of ownership.
 IDEX Corp. is a manufacturer of a wide array of proprietary, highly engineered products, including industrial pumps, stainless steel banding and clamping devices, sheet metal fabricating equipment and tooling, automatic lubrication systems, low horsepower compressors, and vibration control equipment. Its products are sold to a broad range of markets, the largest of which are the chemical processing, transportation equipment, food processing, pulp and paper, and oil refining industries.
 Additional information can be obtained on IDEX Corp., via fax, at no cost; dial 800-PRO-INFO, code 087.
