In an interview Tuesday afternoon, Johnson Controls chairman and CEO George Oliver said he expects Power Solutions to remain based in the current facility in Glendale both before and after the $13.2 billion sale closes.
Johnson Controls International PLC is selling its automotive-battery business to a group led by Brookfield Business Partners LP for $13.2 billion in cash, the company said Tuesday. Johnson Controls said it would reap proceeds of $11.4 billion after tax and transaction-related expenses. Brookfield, which is joining with Canadian pension fund Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec, has been in talks with Johnson Controls for weeks, grinding through the details of the deal.
Chief Executive Officer George Oliver is betting on continued growth of “smart buildings” as companies seek to boost efficiency of working spaces with new technology. With the sale of the power unit to Brookfield Asset Management Inc., Johnson Controls becomes a “pure-play” provider of fire, security, climate control, and building-management systems. The new structure will enable Johnson Controls to lower capital spending and boost profit margins, Oliver said in a conference call with analysts Tuesday.
Johnson Controls employs 2,600 people in the Milwaukee area, including 500 Power Solutions employees at the Glendale headquarters. Power Solutions is expected to remain based in Glendale following Tuesday's sale news, according to a company spokesman.
Johnson Controls announced it will sell Power Solutions, its automotive battery business based in Glendale, to Canadian firm Brookfield Business Partners LP and its institutional partners for $13.2 billion.
Shares of Johnson Controls were up 3.5 percent at $35.40 before the bell. The deal will allow Johnson Controls to focus on its building technologies and solutions business, which makes heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems, as well as building access control and fire detection systems. Reuters had reported, late last month, that Brookfield and Johnson Controls were close to finalizing terms for the sale of the unit, whose batteries are used in about a third of cars globally.

Johnson Controls International PLC is selling its power solutions division to Brookfield Business Partners LP for $13.2 billion.
Johnson Controls International plc will sell its Power Solutions business to Brookfield Business Partners L.P. in a cash transaction worth $13.2 billion, the company announced Tuesday. Power Solutions, which manufactures and distributes battery technology for vehicles, generated $8 billion in revenue in fiscal 2018. The sale will streamline the Johnson Controls portfolio, give the company financial flexibility, and allow it to return money to shareholders, George Oliver, Johnson Control's chief executive officer, said in a statement. The company will use $3.0 billion to $3.5 billion to pay down debt. The transaction is expected to close on June 30, 2019. Johnson Controls shares are up 3.4% in Tuesday premarket trading, but down 10.3% for 2018 to date. The S&P 500 index is up 2% for the year so far.

Johnson Controls International PLC has hit a last-minute snag in its quest to sell its automotive-battery business, according to people familiar with the matter. The company was nearing a deal to sell the unit to Brookfield Asset Management Inc. for close to $14 billion, the people said. Some analysts expected a deal with the private-equity firm to be announced ahead of Johnson Controls’ fiscal fourth-quarter earnings report Thursday morning.

While multiple reports have emerged about the progress of the review, including one which indicated the company was nearing a sale of the business, Johnson Controls didn't have any specific updates on the process Thursday.
We still have a ways to go before we reach late-January highs for most stocks on the S&P 500, but if the relief rally successfully morphs into a holiday season buying spree for the markets, we may see a late-year surge now that the midterm elections are behind us.
