Icahn selling auto parts maker Federal Mogul to Tenneco for $5.4 billion


Recommended Posts

Carl Icahn Federal Mogul Tenneco

Auto parts maker Tenneco is buying Federal-Mogul from Carl Icahn's Icahn Enterprises in a deal worth $5.4 billion in cash and stock.

Tenneco will then separate the combined companies into two separate stocks in a tax-free spinoff, one focusing on "aftermarket and ride performance," the other on "powertrain technology."

"We expect to be meaningful stockholders of Tenneco going forward and are excited about the prospects for additional value creation," Icahn said in a statement. "This transaction is an excellent example of our general modus operandi at Icahn Enterprises, by which we seek to acquire undervalued assets, nurture, guide and improve their condition and operations, and ultimately develop them into more valuable businesses, which greatly enhances value for all shareholders."

Icahn acquired control of Federal Mogul, a maker of wiper blades and spark plugs, in 2008. The activist investor then took it private in January 2017.

Tenneco shares jumped more than 6 percent in premarket trading Tuesday.

The sale to Icahn, made up of $800 million in cash and 29.5 million shares of Tenneco stock, is expected to close in the second half of the year.

      WATERFORD, Mich. – Tenneco said it will expand its portfolio of continuously variable semi-active suspension (CVSA) technology to the North American SUV market.
      The technology has been launched on more than 40 vehicle models globally, according to the company.
      “With SUVs and light trucks accounting for more than 60 percent of vehicle sales in North America, it presents an ideal opportunity to expand electronic suspension technology to this important market segment,” said Ben Patel, vice president and chief technology officer for Tenneco. “Consumers expect the same comfort, control and refinement in the ride and handling of SUVs as they find in today’s leading sedans. Tenneco’s proven CVSA solutions meet these expectations without compromising ride comfort for handling.”
      CVSA technology is part of the Monroe Intelligent Suspension portfolio. It is designed to adjust to changing road conditions in real time, continuously sensing the road and driving conditions and adjusting the damper within milliseconds.
      CVSAe utilizes an externally mounted electronic valve that independently adjusts the damper’s compression performance in real time for a more comfortable and controlled ride. CVSA2 features two electro-hydraulic valves that control the damper’s rebound and compression motions independently, delivering a larger tuning range for higher levels of comfort and control, according to Tenneco.

      We are setting up this topic to share information on any impact the current COVID-19 virus has on the auto parts industry. Sourcing, distribution, parts availability, and business impact. General questions and sharing of knowledge are welcome.
      The WHO has designated this a global pandemic that is already affecting many industries, including most sectors in the automotive industry. Corporate and Independent automotive parts stores are being impacted by repair shop businesses slowing down. As you know, many parts come from China and other parts of the world, which are affected by the current pandemic.
      Please share how this is impacting you and what you are seeing.

      Who else is seeing industry shortages and inflation issues causing price and availability issues on auto parts? Manufacturers are short staff, supplies, and materials. Containers from China are backlogged and getting more expensive and add on top of that inflation, prices have and will continue to go up. 
      Chip shortages and user car prices going up, means more more for everything. New car prices are getting over sticker in some cases. Its all relative because even groceries are going up in price. Gas and oil prices as well.  🥵
