UT selling Goodrich assets soon

United Technologies will start taking bids soon on some Goodrich assets it has to sell as a condition of winning regulatory approval for its $16.5 billion takeover of Goodrich. UT closed its largest-ever acquisition last month, but has to sell assets like Goodrich's power generation and small-engine control units. Those assets could earn more than $500 million. The sale has attracted interest from rival aerospace companies.
