Glenview-based Illinois Tool Works Inc competed its plan to divest a 51 percent stake in its Decorative Surfaces segment, consisting of Wilsonart and related international businesses, to a fund managed by Clayton, Dubilier & Rice LLC.

ITW will receive approximately $1.05 billion and will retain a 49 percent equity interest in the business.

ITW's ownership interest in the businesses will be reported using the equity method of accounting. The current fourth quarter and full-year 2012 forecast excludes the expected after-tax gain from the transaction.
