Industry News » ITT Corporation announces plan to separate into three independent publicly traded companies
        • Water-related businesses to be spun off as a standalone water technology company
        • Defense segment to be spun off as a standalone, diversified defense technology and
information solutions company
        • ITT Corporation to continue as a standalone, highly engineered industrial company
        • Conference call for investors today at 8:30 a.m. Eastern Standard Time
         ITT Corporation (NYSE: ITT)  announced that its board of directors has unanimously approved a plan to separate the company’s businesses into three distinct, publicly traded companies. Under the plan, ITT would execute tax-free spinoffs to shareholders of its water-related businesses and its Defense & Information Solutions segment.
        Following completion of the transaction, ITT will continue to trade on the New York Stock Exchange as an industrial company that supplies highly engineered solutions in the aerospace, transportation, energy and industrial markets. Under the plan, ITT shareholders will own shares in all three corporations following the completion of the transaction.
        ITT senior management and its board of directors believe that these three businesses are wellpositioned to create significant value for shareholders as standalone companies. ITT expects to finalize and execute the plan before the end of the year.
        “For nearly a century, ITT has been known for transformative strategies that create value for customers and shareowners,” said Steve Loranger, chairman, president and chief executive officer of ITT. “In recent years, we have nurtured and grown our unique portfolio of businesses, which are now poised to emerge as three strong and focused standalone companies, with leading products and market positions, highly skilled employees and tremendous value-generating potential for shareowners. In today’s business environment, we believe this strategy is the best approach to unlock this value and position the three businesses to grow and serve customers as focused global companies. Each new company will be more nimble and able to build stronger, more intimate customer relationships to accelerate mutual success.” 
        Loranger continued, “We believe each of these future companies will be strategically well positioned for growth, nicely capitalized, with global capabilities, outstanding operating track records and world-class leadership. In addition, we believe the transformation plan will provide
more focused opportunities for our employees, who will be instrumental in the future success of all three companies.”
