Highlights from our REMY Report include:

  • Agreement to be Acquired -- On July 13, 2015, Remy International, Inc. announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to be acquired by BorgWarner Inc., a product leader in highly engineered components and systems for powertrains around the world. Consequently, shares of Remy jumped 42.43% to end Monday's session at $29.24. On the other hand, BorgWarner's shares surged 2.16% to close at $54.30.
  • Synergies and Terms of the Transaction - As per the agreement, BorgWarner will acquire all of the outstanding shares of Remy for $29.50 per share or a 44% premium to Remy's closing price of $20.53 a share on Friday, July 10, 2015, which implies an enterprise value of Remy of around $1.2 billion. A same day report by The Wall Street Journal highlighted that the acquisition will bring together the two companies that already produce products aimed at boosting the efficiency of a vehicle. BorgWarner sells turbochargers while Remy produces alternators and start-stop technology. According to Remy, the completion of the transaction is subject to the approval of its stockholders as well as certain customary terms and conditions, including antitrust and other regulatory clearances in the U.S. and abroad. Sullivan & Cromwell LLP provided legal advice and UBS Investment Bank acted as financial advisor to Remy International for the deal. In addition, the Company expects to complete the transaction in the fourth quarter of 2015.
  • Management View on the deal -Commenting on the transaction, Remy Chairman John Weber said, "This transaction provides substantial value to our shareholders, our employees and business partners around the globe. It provides an opportunity to market our products to a much broader and diverse group of original equipment manufacturers. The product and technology synergies are obvious, resulting from each company's historical focus on separate areas of the global powertrain market." Further, Remy's President and Chief Executive Officer, Jay Pittas, added, "Our products and capabilities should complement BorgWarner very well and support growing vehicle electrification trends.  We are confident our customers and channel partners will benefit from the strategic fit, as it brings together two long-standing industry leaders."
