Solvay to Exit Inovyn Joint Venture

Solvay SA, Brussels, Belgium, and Ineos, Rolle, Switzerland announce their intention to end their 50/50 chlorovinyls Inovyn joint venture earlier than originally foreseen, with Ineos to become the sole shareholder. Closing of the transaction is likely to occur in the second half of 2016, subject to finalizing definitive legal agreements and customary regulatory approvals.

Solvay and Ineos formed Inovyn in July 2015, with Solvay's exit originally planned in July 2018. Upon exit, Solvay would receive a final exit price payment of EUR 335 million. "Thanks to the fast and efficient integration of its teams and assets, Inovyn is now a sound and sustainable chlorovinyls player. This allows us to bring forward Solvay's exit and to further focus on its portfolio transformation, while achieving a first step in de-leveraging the balance sheet," said Jean-Pierre Clamadieu, CEO of Solvay.

"Ineos is very comfortable with the proposed early acquisition of the full shareholding of the Inovyn joint venture. Chlorovinyls businesses are core to large petrochemicals companies such as ours and through this planned acquisition Inovyn will have an owner with a long term vision that provides stability for its business and employees," comments Jim Ratcliffe, Chairman of Ineos.
