MORRIS PLAINS, N.J., Oct. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Exactly one year after Honeywell (NYSE: HON) announced it would spin off its Homes and Global Distribution business, Resideo Technologies, Inc. will host an Investor Conference in New York City today. The future stand-alone company will showcase its attractive financial profile, growth strategy, and smart home technologies. It is anticipated that when-issued trading on the New York Stock Exchange in Resideo common stock will begin on or about Monday, Oct. 15. On Monday, Oct. 29, Resideo common stock will begin regular-way trading on the NYSE under the ticker symbol, "REZI."
Mike Nefkens is president and CEO of Honeywell Homes, which will become Resideo following the spin. He said:
"On this first anniversary of the spin-off announcement, Resideo is on the cusp of becoming a stand-alone, publicly traded company. We are ready to meet customer needs across every part of the home and at every point of the buyer's journey. From the vigilant security keeping watch on the exterior, iconic comfort products on the wall, smart controls behind the wall, and cloud-based mobile apps giving consumers greater control, Resideo will launch as a global leader with the know-how to truly connect the home. We start with an unparalleled presence in 150 million homes and a 130-year history providing reliable solutions for the critical systems of a home. We are deepening our ties with the professionals who deliver comfort and security to homeowners, and have a long-term, exclusive license to use the globally recognized Honeywell Home brand. Our ADI global distribution business is already the leader in security distribution, and one of the leading reasons Honeywell residential products continue to be professionally installed 15 million times a year."
"Resideo begins with an enviable market position, as a $4.7 billion business with a global addressable market of more than $35 billion that continues to grow thanks to favorable trends and consumer preferences. Our diversified revenue streams, strong segment profits and limited capital expenditure needs are just a few of the reasons Resideo has a bright future. We can't wait to see REZI listed on the NYSE."
