14:41 EDTJCIJohnson Controls to create automotive-interiors business JV with China partner
Johnson Controls (JCI), and Yanfeng Automotive Trim Systems, a wholly owned subsidiary of Huayu Automotive Systems, the component group of Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation, SAIC, announced the signing of a definitive agreement to form a global automotive interiors joint venture. The agreement is a noncash transaction comprised of asset contributions by the two parties that will create the largest automotive interiors company in the world with revenues of approximately $7.5B. Yanfeng will hold the majority 70% share in the joint venture, and Johnson Controls will have a 30% share. "Joining our two interiors businesses is a natural extension of our already very successful existing partnership with Yanfeng in automotive seating, which has flourished over the past 15 years. It creates a strong combined company with a market leading position and a foundation for sustained global growth," said Alex Molinaroli, Johnson Controls chairman and chief executive officer. "This also aligns with Johnson Controls' corporate commitment to China, which is increasingly becoming a major center for the global automotive industry."The new company will be headquartered in Shanghai with global engineering, development and customer centers in the United States, Europe, China, Japan and India. The product portfolio will include instrument panels and cockpit systems, door panels and floor consoles. The transaction is subject to limited conditions and is expected to close in the first half of calendar year 2015. The agreement excludes certain facilities in both Yanfeng and Johnson Controls' existing networks. Johnson Controls will continue to operate those within its network as part of Johnson Controls' Automotive Experience business. Johnson Controls will host an analyst call Monday, May 19 at 3 p.m. CDT.
