Sensient Technologies Mulls Acquisition

Sensient Technologies Corporation (NYSE:SXT) is seeking acquisitions. Paul Manning, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sensient Technologies Corporation, said in Sensient Technologies Corporation earnings call, Yes, there's certainly gaps in the portfolio that an acquisition could fit very nicely with. So certainly, that would be a principal use of some of that free cash. But absent a suitable acquisition, which could be either suitable from a technical standpoint or suitable from a price standpoint. Absent that, we see buybacks as a very good use of free cash at this point.”
