Sika's Board To Buy Out Founding Family's Stake

Sika AG's (SWX:SIK) Board of Directors plans on buying the stake of the company's founding family Burkard in a bid to prevent Compagnie de Saint-Gobain S.A. (ENXTPA:SGO) from taking over Sika, Sonntagszeitung reported, citing sources in the know. According to the report, the Board is ready to pay the family's Schenker-Winkler Holding AG CHF 2.25 billion for the stake. Sika spokesman Dominik Slappnig confirmed the offer to news agency AWP on April 20, 2015, but did not disclose the offer price, saying only it includes a premium. At the same time, SWH spokesman Andreas Durisch told AWP the family is not aware of an alternative offer and stressed any proposal that does not include Saint-Gobain is unacceptable. However, Sika's management and some shareholders, including Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Cascade Investment, L.L.C., have expressed their fierce opposition to the deal with Saint-Gobain and initiated a lengthy battle with the family. According to Sonntagszeitung's report, the family would retain a part of its stake for the time being to profit from any rise in the share price.
