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. Really, taking someone managing the regulation of Alcohol and making himthe President of an IVY Tech regional campus. Does he have an education background?

  2. Jan, great rant. Now how about you review the report and offer rebuttal of the memo. This might be more conducive to civil discourse than a wild rant with no supporting facts. Perhaps some links to support your assertions would be helpful

  3. I've lived in Indianapolis my whole and been to the track 3 times. Once for a Brickyard, once last year on a practice day for Indy 500, and once when I was a high school student to pick up trash for community service. In the past 11 years, I would say while the IMS is a great venue, there are some upgrades that would show that it's changing with the times, just like the city is. First, take out the bleachers and put in individual seats. Kentucky Motor Speedway has individual seats and they look cool. Fix up the restrooms. Add wi-fi. Like others have suggested, look at bringing in concerts leading up to events. Don't just stick with the country music genre. Pop music would work well too I believe. This will attract more young celebrities to the Indy 500 like the kind that go to the Kentucky Derby. Work with Indy Go to increase the frequency of the bus route to the track during high end events. That way people have other options than worrying about where to park and paying for parking. Then after all of this, look at getting night lights. I think the aforementioned strategies are more necessary than night racing at this point in time.

  4. Talking about congestion ANYWHERE in Indianapolis is absolutely laughable. Sure you may have to wait in 5 minutes of traffic to travel down BR avenue during *peak* times. But that is absolutely nothing compared to actual big cities. Indy is way too suburban to have actual congestion problems. So please, never bring up "congestion" as an excuse to avoid development in Indianapolis. If anything, we could use a little more.

  5. Oh wait. Never mind.
