Remy rises in first day of trading on NASDAQ exchange

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Shares of Pendleton-based Remy International Inc. got off to a strong start on the NASDAQ exchange Thursday as the stock rose 4.1 percent.

Company shares began trading on the NASDAQ exchange Thursday morning at $15.85 per share and climbed to $16.50 by the end of the day. Overall, NASDAQ was down slightly (8 points) during the same period.

“We’re pleased to see positive movement,” Remy CEO John Weber told IBJ Thursday morning. “And that is indicative of our aspiration, which was that we think that if the stock gets more exposure and liquidity, then the stock will respond favorably.”

Remy shares had been listed on the thinly traded pink sheets under the ticker symbol RMYI. Shareholders were employees or minority owners.

Remy filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Sept. 21 to offer 40,000 company shares to employees and immediate family members.

By offering a limited number of shares, Remy boosted its shareholder count from 190 to 300, enabling the company to list on NASDAQ.

Remy's ticker on the NASDAQ is REMY.

Weber will help mark the NASDAQ listing by ringing the ceremonial opening bell Monday.

“It’s been a long and tortuous journey over the past seven years, and five since we’ve restructured,” he said. “We’ve weathered the automotive meltdown, and we’re gaining shares in the marketplace.”

Remy produces starters, alternators and hybrid motors for light- and heavy-duty vehicles. The company also remanufactures starters and alternators.

Once a division of General Motors Corp., the company was spun off in 1994 as Delco Remy before adopting its current name in 2004.

The company has 6,500 employees worldwide and 400 in Indiana.

In the third quarter ended Sept. 30, Remy earned $17.2 million on revenue of $277 million.

  1. In reality, Lilly is maintaining profit by cutting costs such as Indiana/US citizen IT workers by a significant amount with their Tata Indian consulting connection, increasing Indian H1B's at Lillys Indiana locations significantly and offshoring to India high paying Indiana jobs to cut costs and increase profit at the expense of U.S. workers.

  2. I think perhaps there is legal precedence here in that the laws were intended for family farms, not pig processing plants on a huge scale. There has to be a way to squash this judges judgment and overrule her dumb judgement. Perhaps she should be required to live in one of those neighbors houses for a month next to the farm to see how she likes it. She is there to protect the people, not the corporations.

  3. http://www.omafra.gov.on.ca/english/engineer/facts/03-111.htm Corporate farms are not farms, they are indeed factories on a huge scale. The amount of waste and unhealthy smells are environmentally unsafe. If they want to do this, they should be forced to buy a boundary around their farm at a premium price to the homeowners and landowners that have to eat, sleep, and live in a cesspool of pig smells. Imagine living in a house that smells like a restroom all the time. Does the state really believe they should take the side of these corporate farms and not protect Indiana citizens. Perhaps justifiable they should force all the management of the farms to live on the farm itself and not live probably far away from there. Would be interesting to investigate the housing locations of those working at and managing the corporate farms.

  4. downtown in the same area as O'malia's. 350 E New York. Not sure that another one could survive. I agree a Target is needed d'town. Downtown Philly even had a 3 story Kmart for its downtown residents.

  5. Indy-area residents... most of you have no idea how AMAZING Aurelio's is. South of Chicago was a cool pizza place... but it pales in comparison to the heavenly thin crust Aurelio's pizza. Their deep dish is pretty good too. My waistline is expanding just thinking about this!
