Item 2.01.
Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets

On May 30, 2008, Watts Water Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”), through its indirect wholly-owned subsidiary Watts Denmark Holding ApS, formerly Watts Denmark Holding A/S (“Watts Denmark”), purchased all of the outstanding share capital of Blücher Metal A/S (“Blücher”) pursuant to the terms of a Share Purchase Agreement dated as of April 8, 2008 (the “Purchase Agreement”), between Watts Denmark and Blücher Holding A/S, the sole stockholder of Blücher (the “Seller”).  The aggregate consideration paid for all of the outstanding share capital of Blücher was DKK 876,700,000, which consisted of DKK 809,733,000 in cash and the assumption of DKK 66,967,000 of net debt, and includes an estimated working capital adjustment of DKK 7,700,000.  The aggregate purchase price is equal to approximately $182.8 million based on the exchange rate of Danish Krone to U.S. dollars as of May 30, 2008.  15% of the purchase price was placed in escrow to secure the indemnification obligations of the Seller pursuant to the Purchase Agreement.  The Company funded the transaction entirely from cash on hand.
Blücher is a leading provider of stainless steel drainage systems in Europe and a worldwide leader in providing stainless steel drainage products to the marine industry.  Blücher’s main products include push-fit stainless steel pipes and related fittings, light-duty drains for residential, commercial and marine applications, and drains for heavy-duty industrial applications including brewery and pharmaceutical applications.
The terms of the Purchase Agreement were determined on the basis of arm’s-length negotiations.  Other than with respect to the transactions contemplated by the Purchase Agreement, neither the Company nor any subsidiary of the Company has previously had any material relationship with Blücher or the Seller, and, to the Company’s knowledge, no affiliates of the Company or any of its subsidiaries, or any director or officer of the Company or its subsidiaries, or any associate of such director or officer, has a material relationship with Blücher or the Seller.
A copy of the Purchase Agreement was previously filed as Exhibit 2.1 to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K dated April 8, 2008 and is incorporated herein by reference as though fully set forth herein.  The foregoing summary of the Purchase Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby is qualified in its entirety by the complete text of the Purchase Agreement.  The Purchase Agreement is incorporated by reference to provide information regarding its terms.  It is not intended to provide any other factual information about the Company.  Such information can be found in the public filings the Company makes with the Securities and Exchange Commisson, which are available without charge at www.sec.gov and in the Investor Relations section of the Company’s website at www.wattswater.com.
