Chemical Maker Stoller’s Owner Said to Explore $1.5 Billion Sale

  • US chemicals business hired adviser to explore options
  • Houston based company makes products to improve crop yields

The owners of the agricultural chemicals company Stoller are exploring a sale that could value it at as much as $1.5 billion, including debt, according to people with knowledge of the matter.

The Houston-based company, which is controlled by the Stoller Foundation following the death of its founder Jerry Stoller in 2019, is working with an adviser to look at strategic options for the company, including a sale, said the people, who asked not to be identified because they weren’t authorized to speak publicly. Stoller will likely receive interest from other private equity firms and peers, the people said.
