Honeywell (HON +0.7%) has completed its sale of its Friction Materials business to Federal-Mogul (FDML +0.4%) with the aim of realigning its portfolio to match the company's focused industries. The deal is valued at ~$155M.

"The sale of the Friction Materials business is a significant step in our effort to fully align the Honeywell portfolio around Great Positions in Good Industries," says Chairman and CEO Dave Cote.

The company is also repositioning its Transportation Systems business segment with its Aerospace business segment to take advantage of the engineering and technology similarities between the two.

The realignments will have no effect on the Company's historical consolidated financial position, results of operations, or cash flows.
