Following the completion of the transaction, Olin (OLN) will be an industry leader in chlor-alkali and derivatives – benefiting from the combination of complementary businesses, significant scale, integration, cost-advantaged feedstocks, and a broad and diverse end-uses portfolio. Expected cost synergies of the transaction include network optimization which will facilitate output expansion, significant logistics savings and benefits, and the potential for expansion of existing products produced by Olin and Dow (DOW) into additional geographies and to additional customers. Annual revenues of the combined business are anticipated to be approximately $7B and EBITDA is expected to be $1B on a 2014 pro forma basis, excluding synergies.

07:03 EDTDOWDow to merge chlor-alkali, downstream derivatives units with Olin
The Dow Chemical Company (DOW) and Olin Corporation (OLN) announced that the boards of directors of both companies unanimously approved a definitive agreement under which Dow will separate a significant portion of its chlorine value chain and merge that new entity with Olin in a transaction that will create an industry leader with revenues approaching $7B. The transaction has a tax efficient consideration of $5B, and a taxable equivalent value of $8B to Dow and Dow shareholders. It is highly complementary to the strategic objectives of both companies, with significant potential to enhance value for both Dow and Olin shareholders, and create substantial benefits for customers. The terms of the agreement call for Dow to separate its U.S. Gulf Coast Chlor-Alkali and Vinyl, Global Chlorinated Organics and Global Epoxy businesses, and then merge these businesses with Olin in a Reverse Morris Trust transaction. The merger will result in Dow shareholders receiving approximately 50.5% of the shares of Olin, with existing Olin shareholders owning approximately 49.5%. The transaction is valued at $5B, and includes $2B of cash and cash equivalents to be paid to Dow; an estimated $2.2Bin Olin common stock using the Olin stock value as of close on March 25, 2015; and approximately $800M of assumption of pension and other liabilities. In addition, by virtue of the joint share ownership, both sets of shareholders will benefit from a minimum of $200M in projected annual synergies and cost savings. The transaction is subject to a vote by Olin shareholders and is expected to close by year-end 2015.
