Huntsman to acquire CVC Thermoset Specialties

Huntsman to acquire CVC Thermoset Specialties

News 23.03.2020

Huntsman Corporation announced in the middle of March its agreement to acquire CVC Thermoset Specialties, a North American specialty chemical manufacturer serving the industrial composites, adhesives and coatings markets. CVC Thermoset Specialties is part of Emerald Performance Materials LLC which is majority owned by affiliates of American Securities LLC.

CVC Thermoset Specialties has annual revenues of approximately $115 million with two manufacturing facilities located in Akron, Ohio, and Maple Shade, New Jersey. Under terms of the agreement, Huntsman will pay $300 million, subject to customary closing adjustments, in an all-cash transaction funded from available liquidity. Based on full year 2019, the purchase price represents an adjusted EBITDA multiple of approximately 10 times, or between approximately 7 to 8 times pro forma for synergies, the lower multiple end being dependent upon normal growth market conditions. The transaction is expected to close around midyear of 2020.

Commenting on the acquisition, Scott Wright, President of Huntsman's Advanced Materials division, said: “The acquisition of CVC Thermoset Specialties brings valuable complementary technology breadth to our Advanced Materials portfolio and its unique products will make systems using our class-leading epoxy-based materials even tougher, stronger, and more durable. This business manufactures highly specialized toughening, curing and other additives used in a wide range of composite, adhesive and coatings applications across aerospace, automotive and industrial markets. In addition to strengthening our position in North America, Huntsman will use our existing asset footprint and routes to market in Europe and Asia to rapidly grow and globalize CVC Thermoset Specialties’ exciting and complementary product range. This acquisition will further improve our ability to create differentiation in our customers’ applications, in particular through our strong formulations business.”

“In these uncertain times, our financial strength will allow us to keep looking for these types of acquisitions, while at the same time maintain a conservative balance sheet and opportunistically repurchase shares. We remain committed to our balanced approach to capital allocation. Year-to-date we have taken advantage of our depressed stock price and have repurchased approximately $85 million in stock.”
