10:32 EDTEMNTaminco announces agreement to be acquired by Eastman Chemical
Taminco (TAM) announced a definitive agreement to be acquired by Eastman Chemical (EMN) for $26.00 per share, for a total transaction value of approximately $2.8B in cash. The transaction was approved by the Board of Directors of Taminco and the Board of Directors of Eastman. The merger agreement includes a 30-day "go-shop" period, during which Taminco, with the assistance of Morgan Stanley, its financial advisor, will actively solicit, receive, evaluate and potentially enter into negotiations with parties that offer alternative proposals. For a 15-day period following the termination of the go-shop period, Taminco will be permitted to continue discussions and enter into or recommend a transaction with any person that submitted a qualifying superior proposal during the 30-day period. There are no guarantees that this process will result in a superior proposal. The transaction is expected to close in Q4, subject to receipt of written approval by a majority of Taminco's shareholders, the receipt of regulatory approvals, the satisfaction of other customary closing conditions and assuming that the go-shop process does not result in an alternative superior proposal.
