United Technologies – Will the Break-up Unlock Value?

For over a year, United Technologies (UTX) management has been under pressure from large activist investor, Third Point, to break up the company. Management finally succumbed to that pressure and announced on November 26, that it would indeed move forward with a split.

UTX will spin off its Climate, Control and Security business, Carrier, as well as its elevator manufacturing business, Otis, into separate public companies. The remaining business will be the largest aerospace aftermarkets focused company in the world. With the recent closing of the Rockwell Collins acquisition, it will be ~50% larger than its closest competitor, GE.

Watch the video below to see how much value could be unlocked with the spin-off.
