LANCASTER, Pa., Jan. 22, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Armstrong World Industries, Inc.

With ACGI, we will dramatically expand our Architectural Specialties portfolio and capabilities to meet the growing demand for wood ceilings and walls.  We look forward to completing the transaction and welcoming the ACGI team to AWI in the near future.”

The transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of 2019 and remains subject to customary closing conditions.  Following closing, AWI expects to serve existing and future customers out of the acquired Missouri facility and through its current distribution channels.  AWI will fund the acquisition with available cash.  Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
