Emerson’s majority owned subsidiary, AspenTech, has recently announced it has entered into an agreement to acquire Micromine, an end-to-end mining software provider. This acquisition will build on AspenTech’s software portfolio, furthering its diversification strategy into the metals and mining market and facilitating the digital transformation and sustainability goals of the industry.

The transaction with AspenTech, which closed in May 2022, accelerates Emerson’s software strategy and demonstrates commitment to build a higher growth, more diversified and cohesive portfolio. This proposed acquisition of Micromine is an example of how Emerson and AspenTech will drive growth through continued investment and M&A.

Micromine, headquartered in Perth, Australia, offers solutions relevant to every step of the mining process from exploration, evaluation, design and planning through production and optimization. Micromine’s solutions are used at over 2,000 sites across all major mining regions.

Following AspenTech’s completion of the proposed acquisition, Emerson will continue to be a 55% shareholder in AspenTech.
