Check out which companies are making headlines before the bell:

Nike — The athletic apparel and footwear maker reported quarterly profit of 49 cents per share, one cent a share above estimates. Revenue was essentially in line, but shares came under pressure after Nike warned that future orders would come in at a slower pace.

Honeywell — Honeywell named President and Chief Operating Officer Darius Adamczyk as its next CEO, effective on March 31, 2017. He will succeed David Cote, who has served in the role since 2002. Cote will continue as Executive Chairman until April 2018.

Energy Transfer Equity — The company ended its $33 billion merger agreement with Williams Cos. Last week, a judge had ruled that ending the deal was legal because of the lack of a necessary tax opinion. Williams believes ETE has breached the merger agreement and has filed an appeal.

McCormick & Co. — The spice maker named senior vice president Michael Smith as chief financial officer, effective September 1. Current CFO Gordon Stetz will continue as executive vice president after that date until his retirement on December 31.
