Updating name, financials and description[edit]

Hi… By way of introduction, my name is Kathleen and I work with ITT. I’d like some community help in addressing three out-of-date items here on the page, which would bring the article up-to-date.

Our Name: We went from "ITT Corp." to "ITT Inc." in 2016 due to the formation of a new holding company.

Source: http://itt.com/News/Releases/2016/ITT-reports-2016-first-quarter-results/

Our Financials: The current numbers are from 2013 and 2015 was announced last spring. If you like, I can update these myself since they are audited/reported numbers.

The numbers are: Revenue: US $2.5 billion, Operating Income: US $380.1 million, Net income: US $351.8 million, Total assets: US $ 3.7 billion, Total equity: US $1.4 billion, Number of employees: 9,700

Sources:


Our Description: Given the reorganization of the company, the business we’re in has changed a bit relative to what’s currently in the article. For instance, we’re now organized around Industrial Process, Motion Technologies, Interconnect Solutions and Control Technologies.

Source:

Primary sources, yes, but ones that are audited/checked/verified, etc.

Let me know if this is enough to go on. UPDATE: Made some refinements since I first posted 30 minutes ago. -- Kathleen Bark (talk) 20:54, 8 November 2016 (UTC)

hello Kathleen, I don't see a problem with the proposed content. However, the sources are not sufficient as they fall under WP:PRIMARY , certainly for the name change. May I suggest you use :

instead. This will lead to changing the article for company name, as well as a proposal for renaming the article page. The rest changes are straight forward and can be done anytime. Devopam (talk) 07:45, 26 December 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for this. Am I correct in understanding that it would be okay if I made these changes? If so, I’ll do so and report back here. -- Kathleen Bark (talk) 20:11, 3 February 2017 (UTC)
I’ve updated based on the EDGAR filings. Please someone without COI check my work? -- Kathleen Bark (talk) 17:50, 15 March 2017 (UTC)
