Founder and Editor,

In 2005 the company’s automotive business accounted for 69% of sales. By the end of 2007—before the big auto slump—that had dropped to 51%. In that short period the company had transformed itself from just another auto industry supplier to a technology growth company specializing in building energy efficiency and new battery technology for hybrid and electric cars. (Full disclosure: I own shares of Johnson Controls in my personal portfolio.)
