14:08 EDTDOWDow Chemical to sell ANGUS Chemical to Golden Gate Capital for $1.215B
Dow Chemical announced that it has signed a definitive agreement under which ANGUS Chemical Company will be sold to Golden Gate Capital for $1.215B. The transaction is expected to close during the first quarter of 2015, subject to completion of customary regulatory filings. Dow had previously announced its intent to divest this business on Oct. 2. The divestiture aligns to Dow’s efforts to achieve its identified target of $4.5B-$6B in proceeds from shedding non-strategic assets and businesses by year-end 2015. 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. Approximately 290 employee positions globally are expected to transition employment status as ANGUS moves to being owned by Golden Gate Capital as part of the transaction. Under terms of the purchase agreement, ANGUS will continue to honor customer, licensing and supplier contracts and related agreements.

GE announced that it will build a new manufacturing facility to drive innovation and implementation of advanced manufacturing technologies across GE.
