Evonik Reportedly Mulls Takeover Bid For Clariant And Other Firms

Evonik Industries AG (DB:EVK) is considering a takeover bid for Clariant AG (SWX:CLN), according to people familiar with the matter. "Evonik is considering a bid for Swiss peer Clariant to create a group with a market value of more than €20 billion ($22 billion),” but several sources familiar with the situation said it had also looked at Koninklijke DSM N.V. (ENXTAM:DSM) and Croda International plc (LSE:CRDA). Two of the sources said that work on a potential Clarianttie-up had passed a purely exploratory stage, while another source said that Clariant had not received any bid from Evonik. "Has someone leaked it to kill the deal at an early stage? "a source familiar with Evonik's thinking said, adding thatClariant and its owners had not been receptive to approaches from peers. Evonik has been reviewing options in recent months, these people said, as the German company has been looking to join the wave of M&A in the chemicals sector. Evonik said it did not comment on any market rumours. Clariant and CVC declined to comment.

DSM and CVC Capital Partners Announce Partnership for Polymer Intermediates and Composite Resins Through Formation of New Company

Royal DSM and CVC Capital Partners announced a partnership for DSM's activities in Polymer Intermediates (Caprolactam and Acrylonitrile) and Composite Resins through the formation of a new company, provisionally called NewCo. NewCo will be 65% owned by CVC and 35% by DSM, with 1,950 employees. Pro-forma third-party sales of NewCo in 2014 amounted to EUR 2.1 billion with a 2014 EBITDA of EUR 106 million. The enterprise value of the transaction is EUR 600 million plus an earn-out of up to EUR 175 million. Financing of NewCo will primarily be through an equity contribution from both shareholders, third party financing and a EUR 100 million bridge loan provided by DSM. Estimated net cash proceeds at closing to DSM of EUR 300-350 million. DSM will recognize an initial book loss of approximately EUR 130 million after tax and non-controlling interests, as an exceptional item in first quarter of 2015. Closing, subject to customary conditions and approvals, is expected in third quarter of 2015. DSM will contribute its global caprolactam business (Europe, North America, its 60% stake in DNCC (China) and the caprolactam licensing business), DSM's acrylonitrile business and DSM's Composite Resins business including its 75% stake in JDR (China). DSM's 65% stake in the service organization Sitech Services held via its caprolactam and acrylonitrile businesses will also be transferred. DSM Engineering Plastics has secured at least 80% of its caprolactam needs for 15 years after closing via drawing rights to secure its strategic position and competitiveness, effectively maintaining DSM Engineering Plastics' backward integration. For DSM, this proposed transaction is a logical step in the execution of its strategy as Polymer Intermediates (caprolactam, acrylonitrile) and Composite Resins no longer fit with its more resilient portfolio in Nutrition and Performance Materials. The partnership with CVC allows DSM to further reduce the cyclicality of its portfolio, secure a long-term competitive supply position of caprolactam for DSM Engineering Plastics and fully focus on the Nutrition, Performance Materials and Innovation activities complemented by accelerated actions to improve efficiencies and reduce costs. CVC will work with current management of these businesses to make NewCo a success. CVC sees these businesses as a solid platform with leading positions and substantial potential for future growth. As a 35% shareholder in NewCo, DSM will be able to benefit from any improvements in the businesses that will become part of NewCo. NewCo will continue to supply at least 80% of DSM Engineering Plastics' caprolactam needs in Europe and North America for the coming 15 years via a drawing rights contract, effectively maintaining DSM Engineering Plastics' backward integration. In China DSM Engineering Plastics will continue to be supplied by NewCo. This secures an ongoing strategic and competitive position for the polyamide 6 business in which DSM is a global leader. NewCo will operate as an independent company with three business units: caprolactam, acrylonitrile and composite resins. Pro-forma third party sales of NewCo amounted to EUR 2.1 billion in 2014 with an EBITDA of EUR 106 million, excluding non-controlling interests (DNCC, JDR and Sitech) of EUR 19 million and including the caprolactam licensing income. Due to the ownership change of DSM's caprolactam and acrylonitrile businesses, NewCo automatically becomes an indirect 65% shareholder in Sitech Services, the on-site service provider at the Chemelot Industrial Park in Sittard-Geleen (Netherlands). As a service provider, Sitech generally reinvests the majority of its profit into the Chemelot Industrial Park. DSM will remain a 5% shareholder in Sitech Services via DSM Engineering Plastics.
