Clariant closes sale of detergents and intermediates business

January 10/2014

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Clariant, a world leader in specialty chemicals, announced the closing of the sale of its Detergents and Intermediates business to International Chemical Investors Group (ICIG), said said the producer in its press release.

The total consideration of the sale amounts to CHF 58 million, out of which CHF 20 million in cash became due at closing. Worldwide, 660 employees were transferred from Clariant to the new ICIG business, which from now on will operate under the WeylChem brand umbrella.

"The successful sale promotes the repositioning of the company's portfolio", says Hariolf Kottmann, CEO of Clariant. "As part of Clariant's profitable growth strategy we will focus on markets with strong growth rates and good perspectives for the future and on businesses with a competitive position, resulting in solid pricing power."

In this context, the company has already divested the business units Textile Chemicals, Paper Specialties and the Business Line Emulsions on September 30, 2013. The divestment of the Business Unit Leather Services to Stahl Holdings B.V. is expected to close in the next few months.

Clariant AG is a Swiss chemical company and a world leader in the production of specialty chemicals for the textile, printing, mining and metallurgical industries. It is engaged in processing crude oil products in pigments, plastics and paints.
