Rexnord had the opportunity to acquire Centa but faced some

was a good fit with its core markets such as wind but was also
significantly exposed to marine – a new sector for Rexnord

not know exactly where the market was in its cycle and how
that related to Centa’s addressable markets

• Centa was a family business and lacked organized data to
help understand the business
