11:14 EDTHUNTronox surges following report of Apollo interest in Chemours
Shares of Tronox (TROX), a manufacturer of titanium-dioxide, jumped in morning trading after Bloomberg reported that Apollo Global Management (APO) was considering a takeover bid for Chemours (CC) in a possible attempt to consolidate other makers of titanium-dioxide, or TiO2. WHAT'S NEW: Apollo Global is mulling the potential of making an offer for Chemours, the former chemical-manufacturing unit of DuPont (DD), and using it as a base to consolidate TiO2 makers, Bloomberg reported, citing people with knowledge of the matter. The private equity firm has held preliminary talks with lenders over a buyout of Chemours, whose market value is roughly $1.4B, the report said. Apollo would then approach other companies, including Tronox, about a tie-up to generate scale and cost efficiencies, the report added. OBSTACLES: Bloomberg noted that several hindrances stand in the way of a possible Apollo Global-Chemours tie-up, including a tax bill for DuPont should Chemours be taken private too soon after the July spinoff. In addition, debt will play a major role if a proposal should happen, since Chemours still owes $4B to DuPont as a result of a payment made to DuPont prior to the spinoff, the report says. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On September 25, Huntsman Corporation (HUN), which also manufactures TiO2, said that it anticipates lower titanium-dioxide selling prices, especially in North America, to affect its third quarter earnings, which the company is scheduled to report on October 27. The company also noted at the time that it sees soft demand in the Asia Pacific region having an impact on its Q3 results as well. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, Tronox shares rallied nearly 20% to $7.92, Chemours rose 1.4%, DuPont gained 1.5%, Huntsman advanced 8.2% and Apollo Global slid 0.7%.
