Watsco and Carrier Complete Distribution Joint Venture Transaction in Northeast

MIAMI -Watsco, Inc. today announced that it has completed its joint venture transaction with Carrier Corporation that includes Carrier Corporation’s company-operated HVAC distribution network in the northeast United States.

Carrier’s company-operated northeast distribution network had revenues of approximately $210 million in 2010, with 230 employees serving 11 states from 28 locations. Products sold include a broad offering of Carrier, Bryant and Payne-brand residential, light-commercial and applied-commercial systems, along with related parts and supplies. Watsco has also agreed to contribute to this joint venture its northeastern locations, which serve customers in New York, New Jersey and all of New England with 2010 revenues of approximately $60 million.

Watsco improves indoor living and working environments with air conditioning and heating solutions that provide comfort regardless of the outdoor climate. Our solutions also promote healthier indoor spaces by removing pollutants from the indoor air that can lead to asthma, allergies and reductions in productivity. Furthermore, since heating and cooling accounts for approximately 56% of the energy consumed in a typical United States home, we offer consumers the greatest opportunity to save money on energy by replacing existing air conditioning and heating systems with more energy efficient and environmentally friendly solutions.

As the industry leader with over 500 locations in the United States and Puerto Rico, with additional market coverage on an export basis to parts of Latin America and the Caribbean, significant growth potential remains given that our current revenue run-rate is less than 10% of the estimated $30 billion United States market for HVAC/R products.
