Barington Capital Urges OMNOVA To Undertake Startegic Review

Barington Capital Group, L.P. sent a letter to Kevin McMullen, the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of OMNOVA Solutions Inc. (NYSE:OMN), urging the company to undertake a broad strategic review. The letter stated: “The company has approximately $114 million in federal net operating loss carryforwards (NOLs) that could be used to offset the taxable gains related to the sale of U.S. based assets. We therefore recommend that the company retain a financial advisor to undertake a broad strategic review of OMNOVA's portfolio of businesses. We believe that such strategic review should include, among other things, a consideration of the divestiture of the company's Engineered Surfaces business as well as an assessment of potential accretive bolt-on acquisitions that would enhance the company's Performance Chemicals segment.”
