A few months ago, Trian Partners revealed a new position in Ingersoll’s spin-off Allegion PLC (NYSE:ALLE), which amasses almost 6% of the stock. Mr. Peltz has decided that he would not stand for re-election as a director of Ingersoll-Rand at the 2014 annual shareholder meeting, because of other board commitments, including a recent appointment to the board of Mondelez International Inc (NASDAQ:MDLZ). The fund also holds 12.35 million shares with an aggregate value of slightly more than $1.00 billion in PepsiCo, Inc. (NYSE:PEP).

In 2012 the company showed a net income result of more than 1 billion, of which 64.00% has been generated in North American and of which 53.00% is due to operations in the Climate Solutions Sector.
