Robbins & Myers Announces Record Date and Meeting Date for Special Meeting of Shareholders

HOUSTON, Nov. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Robbins & Myers, Inc. (NYSE: RBN) announced today that it has established a record date and a meeting date for a special meeting of its shareholders to consider and vote upon, among other things, a proposal to adopt the previously announced Agreement and Plan of Merger dated as of August 8, 2012, by and among Robbins & Myers, National Oilwell Varco, Inc., and Raven Process Corp., which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of National Oilwell Varco, and approve the transactions contemplated thereby.

Robbins & Myers' shareholders of record at the close of business on November 26, 2012, will be entitled to notice of the special meeting and to vote at the special meeting.  The special meeting will be held on December 27, 2012, at 8:00 a.m. Central Time, at Robbins & Myers' headquarters located at 10586 Highway 75 North, Willis, Texas 77378.

The parties continue to target a fourth quarter 2012 closing of their merger, subject to certain closing conditions, including the approval of Robbins & Myers' shareholders and clearance under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended, after compliance with the request for information (commonly called a "second request") received by Robbins & Myers and National Oilwell Varco from the US Department of Justice under that Act.  However, compliance with the second request will put pressure on timing and although a fourth quarter closing is targeted, the closing could slip into 2013.
