Quaker Chemical Seeks Acquisition

Michael F. Barry, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President, Quaker Chemical Corporation (NYSE:KWR) said, "'Together with the dividend, our primary use of capital will continue to be funding growth, both organically or by acquisitions. We have completed ten acquisitions over the past five years and we are pleased with the value they have created to date and the value we expect them to generate in the future. We continue to believe that additional acquisitions will be the best way to maximize shareholder value over the next several years. We intend to proceed with both acquisitions and share repurchases while maintaining our leverage at a reasonable level. The level of share repurchases will depend upon our judgment on the potentialacquisition opportunities in the pipeline at any given time".
