Clariant: Divestment of the entire Masterbatches business to PolyOne

Clariant has agreed to sell its entire Masterbatches business to PolyOne. The transaction values the Masterbatches business at USD 1,560 million, representing c. 12.2 times the last twelve months reported EBITDA (ending September 2019) on a cash and debt free basis. This amount is payable at closing, which is expected by Q3 2020.

“This announcement is a significant milestone on our path to focussing on businesses with above-market growth, higher profitability and stronger cash generation. After the successful divestment of Healthcare Packaging in October 2019 the agreement to sell Masterbatches is an important step in delivering on our strategy defined in 2015 to concentrate on our three core Business Areas Care Chemicals, Catalysis and Natural Resources”, said Hariolf Kottmann, Executive Chairman of Clariant. “As announced, we are confident that we will execute the remaining divestment of our Pigments business in 2020 in order to build the new, more focused and stronger Clariant by 2021”, he added.

As previously communicated, the proceeds from the intended divestments of Clariant’s non-core businesses will be used to invest in innovations and technological applications within the core Business Areas, to strengthen Clariant’s balance sheet and to return capital to shareholders.

The deal with PolyOne comprises two separate transactions. The global Masterbatches business is sold in a deal valued at USD 1,500 million, representing c. 12.1 times the last twelve months reported EBITDA (ending September 2019). Separately, the sale of Clariant’s Masterbatches business in India has been approved by Clariant Chemicals (India) Limited’s Board of Directors and is valued at INR 4,260 million or approx. USD 60 million, representing c. 17.3 times the last twelve months reported EBITDA (ending September 2019). Clariant Chemicals (India) Limited is listed on the stock exchanges in India with Clariant AG holding a 51 percent controlling stake. The closing of both transactions is subject to customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals.

Clariant’s Masterbatches business offers color and additive concentrates and performance solutions for plastics. In the financial year 2018, the total Masterbatches business generated sales of around CHF 1.181 billion.
