In a recent press release, chemical company BASF announced the closing of the divestiture of its Construction Chemicals business to an affiliate of Lone Star, a global private equity firm.

The news arrives after BASF and an affiliate of Lone Star had signed a purchase agreement for the acquisition of BASF’s Construction Chemicals business on Dec. 21, 2019. The purchase price on a cash and debt-free basis was 3.17 billion euros ($3.7 billion).

With around 7,500 employees, the Construction Chemicals business operates production sites and sales offices in more than 60 countries and generated sales of about 2.6 billion euros in 2019. Through the purchase, the Construction Chemicals business now forms the newly founded MBCC Group, headquartered in Mannheim, Germany.

According to BASF, “The divestment of the assets and liabilities of the Construction Chemicals business and the related disposal gain will be reflected in BASF’s financial reporting in the fourth quarter of 2020. Payments received in the context of the transaction until September 30 will be included in cash flows from investing activities in the Q3 2020 Statement of Cash Flows.”
