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. Yes sir keep cashing those 300K a year checks direct to IMS, while millions disappear from the teams like Rahal's. Guess there wasn't enough ka- ching going around to keep Sarah Fisher in business without their "merger". LOL._____.Meanwhile back in Realville the series with the "best racing in the world" drew what appeared to be about 5000 live spectators ( and probably 1500 of those Target "freebies", and was beaten in the ratings by a series that reportedly consists of "parades" and aired while most people are still sleeping. That will generate those big ka-chings for sure. :-). But, hey, as long as the Speedway gets the cash who gives a damn about the teams?

  3. If I could actually get the prices...I would do this on my own. We need laws that force provides to publish the costs they will charge. Everyone else gives you the price in advance...except hospitals.

  4. I was under the impression that fencing is not allowed on a front yard and that on a corner, both sides are considered "front" yards, therefore can't be fenced without a variance. Also impedes the visibility for drivers at the intersection. Am I understanding this correctly? Might be why a fence was not included in the plans and a request for a variance will have to be made?.

  5. I was a big fan of Cowards and Carrots, which I got a chance to see at the show. It's currently on Kickstarter, but the designer also put out What's He Building in There last year, which got a fair amount of buzz.
