Solvay: Sale of Caprolactones Business Confirmed

Solvay S.A., Brussels, Netherlands, confirms the sale of its entire Caprolactones business to the Perstorp Group, Perstorp, Sweden, following approval by the European Commission in early January 2008. The transaction was initially announced last October.

The European Commission concluded that the deal would not distort competition within the European Union, since Perstorp has no Caprolactone production facilities. The EC also found that limited vertical integration with some existing Perstorp activities would have no anti-competitive consequences.

The transaction was accounted for in the fourth quarter 2007. The price for the transaction is EUR 200 million before taxes. The activities concerned serve clients worldwide from a manufacturing site located in Warrington/United Kingdom and generated a turnover of about EUR 60 million in 2006 with 65 employees. Perstorp has recently announced that it intends to expand the plant’s capacity.
