Kraton Polymers Withdraws Recommendation Of Merging Styrenic Block Copolymer Business From LCY Polymers

The Board of Directors of Kraton Polymers LLC said that it has withdrawn its recommendation that company stockholders approve a merger with the styrenic block copolymer (SBC) of LCY Polymers Corp. Kraton's board had said on June 30, 2014, that it intended to withdraw its backing of the merger, unless the terms of the deal could be satisfactorily renegotiated within a few days of that announcement. Kraton said that the decision to signal cooling sentiment within the company towards the deal was prompted by a decline in the operating results for the LCY SBC business in the first quarter of 2014 and the related decline in its forecasted results thereafter. Kraton said, "LCY notified Kraton on August 4, 2014 that it would no longer negotiate, and would not agree to, any revisions to the terms and conditions of the combination agreement."
