Remy International files plans for public offering

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Pendleton-based Remy International Inc., the former General Motors Co. unit that exited bankruptcy in 2007, has filed plans to raise up to $100 million through an initial public stock offering.

In the registration, which was filed Friday, Remy said it intends to apply for its old RMYI ticker symbol.

Remy, a manufacturer of starter motors, alternators and hybrid electric motors for consumer and commercial vehicles, said it plans to use money from the offering for “general corporate purposes, which may include debt reduction, acquisition of one or more companies or businesses, and product and geographic expansion.”

IBJ reported in January that Remy was considering a stock offering.

JP Morgan Chase & Co., Bank of America/Merrill Lynch and UBS Investment Bank are acting as joint book-running managers.

The company posted a $105.7 million operating profit on $1.1 billion in revenue in 2010.

Remy said it had 5,717 employees as of Dec. 31, including 1,453 salaried workers and 4,264 hourly employees. It said 830 of the employees were based in the United States and 3,026 were represented by trade unions. About 360 work in Pendleton and Anderson.

Formerly known as Delco Remy, the company traces its roots to brothers Frank and Perry Remy, who developed magnetos, generators that used magnets to help start early automobiles. GM acquired Delco Remy in 1918 and spun it off in 1995. Remy changed its name to Remy International in 2004 and spent less than two months in bankruptcy in 2007.

Last year, the company refinanced its debt and started the process of eliminating its preferred class of shares.

  1. How much you wanna bet, that 70% of the jobs created there (after construction) are minimum wage? And Harvey is correct, the vast majority of residents in this project will drive to their jobs, and to think otherwise, is like Harvey says, a pipe dream. Someone working at a restaurant or retail store will not be able to afford living there. What ever happened to people who wanted to build buildings, paying for it themselves? Not a fan of these tax deals.

  2. Uh, no GeorgeP. The project is supposed to bring on 1,000 jobs and those people along with the people that will be living in the new residential will be driving to their jobs. The walkable stuff is a pipe dream. Besides, walkable is defined as having all daily necessities within 1/2 mile. That's not the case here. Never will be.

  3. Brad is on to something there. The merger of the Formula E and IndyCar Series would give IndyCar access to International markets and Formula E access the Indianapolis 500, not to mention some other events in the USA. Maybe after 2016 but before the new Dallara is rolled out for 2018. This give IndyCar two more seasons to run the DW12 and Formula E to get charged up, pun intended. Then shock the racing world, pun intended, but making the 101st Indianapolis 500 a stellar, groundbreaking event: The first all-electric Indy 500, and use that platform to promote the future of the sport.

  4. No, HarveyF, the exact opposite. Greater density and closeness to retail and everyday necessities reduces traffic. When one has to drive miles for necessities, all those cars are on the roads for many miles. When reasonable density is built, low rise in this case, in the middle of a thriving retail area, one has to drive far less, actually reducing the number of cars on the road.

  5. The Indy Star announced today the appointment of a new Beverage Reporter! So instead of insightful reports on Indy pro sports and Indiana college teams, you now get to read stories about the 432nd new brewery open or some obscure Hoosier winery winning a county fair blue ribbon. Yep, that's the coverage we Star readers crave. Not.
