Clariant Abandons Takeover of Kilfrost’s European De-Icer Unit

Clariant AG has abandoned its planned acquisition of Kilfrost’s aircraft de-icing chemicals business in Europe after failing to get the blessing of U.K. regulators.

Clariant also cited “commercial reasons” for calling off the deal, the Muttenz, Switzerland-based company said in a statement Friday.
