TRW, Network Six to merge

Cleveland-based TRW Inc., a global technology, manufacturing and services

company, has signed a merger agreement with Network Six Inc., an information

technology company specializing in human services. The deal will expand

TRW's state and local government business in the New England region.

The deal, valued at $5.3 million, still must be approved by Network

Six shareholders and is expected to close by the end of the year.

TRW, which supplies automotive, aerospace and IT products to the public

and private sectors, also provides IT systems for human services in more

than 23 states. Such services include government programs for public assistance,

employment, public health, child care, welfare and child support enforcement.

The company also provides health care information systems as well as

integrated public safety communication and transportation centers for state

and local governments.

By acquiring Warwick, R.I.-based Network Six, TRW would have contracts

with state and local governments in the New England area, including maintaining

child support and welfare systems in Rhode Island and a child welfare system

in Maine.

Network Six, incorporated in 1976 as National E-F-T Inc., had revenues

of $11 million last year. TRW, which was founded a century ago, had year-end

sales of $17.2 billion.
