Denver@ (Adds details on the deal)
April 30 (Reuters) - Ingersoll-Rand Plc said on Tuesday it would spin off its industrial business and merge it with industrial pumps and compressors producer Gardner Denver Holdings Inc, creating a company valued at about $15 billion.
The move would allow Ingersoll to focus on its larger, higher-margin business that makes Trane and Thermo King brand of heating, air conditioning and transport refrigeration systems.
The combined company would have a 2019 pro forma revenue of about $6.6 billion, Ingersoll said.
Existing Ingersoll-Rand shareholders will receive 50.1 percent of the shares of the newly formed company, valued at $5.8 billion.
Ingersoll's industrial business, which makes products including industrial pumps and power tools, when combined with Gardner Denver, would have a 2019 pro forma revenue of about $6.6 billion, the companies said.
The remaining climate business, which will be renamed with a new stock ticker, will receive $1.9 billion in cash. The business is expected to have a pro forma revenue of about $12.9 billion. (Reporting by Ankit Ajmera in Bengaluru; Editing by Shailesh Kuber)
