Hexion Holdings to Sell Epoxy Businesses to Westlake Chemical

November 29 2021

Hexion Holdings Corporation informed that as a result of its ongoing strategic review it has entered into a definitive agreement to sell its epoxy-based Coatings and Composite businesses, which includes the epoxy specialty resins and base epoxy resins and intermediates product lines (together, the “Epoxy Business”) for approximately $1.2 billion to Westlake Chemical Corporation.

The Epoxy Business generated total sales of approximately $1.5 billion for the last twelve months ended September 30, 2021, and was reported within the Coatings and Composites reportable segment of the Company. The transaction includes approximately 1,300 associates and 8 manufacturing facilities globally where epoxy-based Coatings and Composite products are produced for highly diversified growing end-markets, such as wind energy, non-residential construction, industrial, electrical, automotive and aerospace.

The Company expects to use the sale proceeds to further pay down debt and to invest in its business. The transaction is expected to close in the first half of 2022, subject to customary regulatory approvals and other closing conditions as well as prior Works Councils consultation.
