HARTFORD, Conn. - United Technologies Corp. announced that its Carrier subsidiary has reached a definitive agreement to acquire Linde AG's Refrigeration Division for approximately $305 million, including estimated debt on closing. In addition, Carrier agreed to assume approximately $85 million of pension and related obligations. The transaction is subject to regulatory approvals.
