The split is scheduled to happen on July 1.

On that day, Edgewell is expected to start trading on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "EPC." Energizer Holdings Inc. will continue to trade under the "ENR" symbol.

Energizer announced the split in April, saying that splitting in two would give each company a clearer focus.

Edgewell said its new logo will be an aqua blue hummingbird.

Shares of St. Louis-based Energizer slipped 18 cents to $134.31 in afternoon trading Friday.
