Ferro Corporation (FOE) announced three strategic actions to advance its value creation strategy. The company said it has reached a definitive agreement to sell substantially all of the assets in its Specialty Plastics business to A. Schulman (SHLM) for $91M in cash. Assets included in the transaction are Ferro’s plastics manufacturing sites in Stryker, Ohio; Evansville and Plymouth, Indiana; Carpentersville, Illinois; and its plastics operations in Castellon, Spain. Specialty Plastics assets not included in the sale are Ferro’s liquid colorants and dispersions business in Edison, New Jersey, and its Specialty Plastics operations in Venezuela. The company estimates that cash proceeds, net of cash taxes and fees, from the sale of the Specialty Plastics assets will be approximately $87M, which it plans to use to reduce debt. The sale is subject to customary closing conditions, including consultation with workers’ representatives. The transaction is expected to close early in the third quarter of 2014. The company is being advised on the Specialty Plastics transaction by Lazard and Jones Day. In addition, Ferro said it has launched a process to market its Polymer Additives business and has retained KeyBanc Capital Markets to advise on the transaction.
