To date, Dow has achieved $2.5B in proceeds designed to remunerate shareholders, reduce debt, and fund growth. The divestiture of ANGUS includes the business headquarters and R&D facility in Buffalo Grove, IL; manufacturing facilities located in Sterlington, LA, and Ibbenbueren, Germany; a packaging facility in Niagara Falls, NY; as well as the associated business, inventory, customer contracts, process technology, business know-how and certain intellectual property.
