DOMO Chemicals to acquire Solvay Performance Polyamides Business in Europe

August 15/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- DOMO Chemicals (Ghent, Belgium) and Solvay (Brussels, Belgium) have signed an agreement for DOMO to acquire Solvays Performance Polyamides Business in Europe, said Chemengonline.

This includes Engineering Plastics operations in France and Poland; High-Performance Fibers in France; Polymer and Intermediates operations in France, Spain and Poland. The agreement also involves a joint venture between BASF and DOMO in France for the production of adipic acid. The business comprises production, sales, technical support, R&D and innovation services, which currently have a combined headcount of approximately 1,100 employees. The acquisition, which is subject to approval by the competent competition authorities, is expected to close by the end of Q4 2019. The purchase price to be paid by DOMO on a cash and debt-free basis would amount to EUR300 million.

The acquisition of this leading PA 6,6 business will significantly strengthen Domo Chemicals downstream nylon-based engineering plastics business and create a European leader with scale, entering the market with a top position in PA6/6,6 in Europe. The result: a backward integrated business with unique technology capabilities and a secured supply of key raw materials. There will be a strong focus on driving combined innovation, while accelerating future growth. Through the acquisition, Domo Chemicals turnover will grow from 900 million EUR to 1,600 million EUR.

Speaking for DOMO Chemicals, Alex Segers, CEO called the acquisition "a major step forward." By integrating the complementary strengths of the diverse teams and talents of both companies, we will enhance our excellence towards our customers by building a unique and competitive integrated Nylon solution provider (6 and 6.6) driven by a strong innovation platform to push future sustainable growth.

The strong reputation of the Technyl brand will perfectly complement DOMOs wide DOMAMID range of engineered and virgin polyamide resin grades and ECONAMID range of recycled polyamides. We are looking forward to offering employees from both companies great opportunities for personal and career development.
