Kolb to Acquire Elementis, a Global
Specialty Chemicals Company

KLK has announced that its wholly owned subsidiary Kolb Distribution has entered into an agreement with Elementis plc to acquire Elementis Specialties Netherlands (ESN), located in Delden, the Netherlands.

Completion of Sale Expected in First Half 2018

Completion of the sale, which is subject to completion of employee consultation processes, receipt of regulatory clearances and other customary closing conditions, is expected in the first half 2018. ESN manufactures surfactants and further specialties and will expand the existing Kolb business portfolio in terms of product range and market coverage.

Accelerating Growth in Chemical Specialties Business

The use of the Delden site as another hub for KLK's market penetration strategy will further accelerate growth in the group's downstream chemical specialties business in Europe.

Upon completion of the proposed acquisition, ESN will continue to supply a range of specialty chemicals to Elementis Specialties Inc under a long-term supply agreement.
