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. Only half a million TV Viewers? And thats an increase? I knew Indycar was struggling but I didn't know it was that bad. Hell, if NASCAR hits 5 Million viewers everyone starts freaking out saying its going down hill. It has a long way to before Indycar even hits NASCAR's bad days.

  2. IU has been talking that line for years with no real progress even with the last Dean, Dr. Brater. Why will an outsider, Dr. Hess, make a difference? With no proof of additional resources (cash in the bank), and a concrete plan to move an academic model that has been outdated for decades with a faculty complacent with tenure and inertia, I can count on IU to remain the same during the tenure of Dr. Hess. One ought to look to Purdue and Notre Dame for change and innovation. It is just too bad that both of those schools do not have their own medical school. Competition might wake up IU. My guess is, that even with those additions to our State, IU will remain in its own little world squandering our State's tax dollars. Why would any donor want to contribute to IU with its track record? What is its strategy to deal with the physician shortage for our State? New leadership will not be enough for us to expect any change.

  3. How do you think the Bridges got approved? I spent a couple days researching PAC's and individual contributions to some city council members during that time. My printouts were inches thick on the two I concentrated on. Finally gave up. Was disgusted with all the donations, and who they were from. Would have taken me days and days to compile a complete list. Tried to give it to the Star reporter, but he thought it was all just fine. (and apparently he was treated well himself) He ended up being laid off or fired though. And then of course, there was land donated to the dad's club, or city, as a partial payoff. All done in the shining example of "charity." No, none of these contributions are a coincidence.

  4. I agree what kind of help or if any will be there for Dr. Ley's patients. I was a patient myself.

  5. What about the hundreds of patients who sought this doctor for the right reasons, to quit drugs. what option do these patients now have, experience horrible withdrawl or return to heroin?? those are the choices. what about the children of these former addicts who's parent(s) WILL not b able to maintain their job, for @ least 2 weeks.. There needs to b an emergency clinic opened for these patients.
