The notes are being issued by Adient Global Holdings Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Glendale-based Johnson Controls that will be transferred to Adient in connection with the planned spin-off.

In addition, Johnson Controls announced that, following the consummation of its merger with a subsidiary of Tyco International plc and the spin-off of Adient, Johnson Controls intends to explore alternatives for its outstanding debt securities.

Adient will have corporate offices at the newly constructed 833 East building in downtown Milwaukee.
