Ingersoll-Rand Completes Allegion Spinoff

Ingersoll-Rand (IR) completed the spinoff of its commercial and residential security business, Allegion (ALLE). The new company started trading today on the NYSE and IR shareholders should have received 1 share of ALLE for every 3 shares of IR owned. The new company is expected to have revenues of over $2b and EBITDA of over $400m.

Those hoping for an attractive entry price due to forced selling as a result of an index change will be disappointed as Allegion will join the S&P 500 along with its parent. The company will replace struggling retailer J.C. Penney (JCP) which will drop to the S&P Midcap 400 index, where it will replace Aeropostale (ARO).
