April 24 (Reuters) - Whirlpool Corp said on Tuesday it agreed to sell its Embraco compressor business to Japan’s Nidec Corp for $1.08 billion in cash.
Whirlpool also said it expects to buy back about $1 billion of shares in the form of a modified Dutch Auction tender offer.
The deal, which does not include its Italy facility, is not expected to have a material impact on Whirlpool’s 2018 financial results, it said. (Reporting by Philip George in Bengaluru; Editing by Gopakumar Warrier)
