october 21, 2014

[China paint information] due to many uncertain factors in the international economic environment, the demand in the European and American markets is sluggish, and the M & A transactions of the global chemical business have entered a relatively weak period from the peak in 2011

however, for some enterprises with strong financial resources, this is the right time to "bargain hunting" - take the opportunity to expand the company's territory

today, let's take a look at which chemical enterprises are at the forefront of this round of "headwind expansion"


ppg is the second largest coating giant in the world. In recent years, PPG has been acquiring and expanding one after another with a fierce momentum

in fact, before focusing on the M & A in the coating field, PPG was a diversified company with coating as its core business that developed rapidly through continuous M & A

ppg spent 10 years to divest its automotive glass, bulk chemicals and full line of sight optical businesses, thereby obtaining more abundant M & a funds and starting a new round of M & A in the paint field

acquisition of coating business of colpisa and its subsidiaries

in January 2013, PPG announced that it had completed the acquisition of coating business of colpisa and its subsidiaries. After the acquisition of colpisa, PPG became the only large multinational paint supplier in Colombia with an original paint production base for automobiles, and became the leading supplier in Colombia with a full range of automotive touch up paint products and mature sales network

merge with georgiagulf to form a new company

The amount of cash plus equity transactions reached US $2.1 billion, and PPG's shareholders will obtain 50.5% of the combined company's equity

accept AkzoNobel's decorative coating business in North America

on December 14, 2013, PPG announced that it agreed to take over the decorative coating business in North America of AkzoNobel, the Dutch chemical giant, the world's largest coating manufacturer, at a price of US $1.1 billion

the North American business has long been a burden to AkzoNobel, because it lacks the scale to compete with the local market leader Xuanwei company, and only recently achieved profits

acquisition of some assets of sprait

on December 18, 2013, PPG acquired some assets of sprait

sprelat has a solid position in industrial markets such as auto parts, construction powder coatings, transportation and general industrial niche markets

acquisition of hi temp coatings

in March 2014, PPG announced that it had completed the acquisition of most of the assets of hi temp Coatings Technology Co., Inc

hi temp is a private enterprise that supplies high temperature resistant and insulating coatings. Its headquarters are located in boxborough, Massachusetts, USA.

The coatings produced by hi temp can be widely used in oil refineries, petrochemical plants, pulp and paper mills, power plants and other enterprises

this acquisition has enhanced the product portfolio of PPG's industrial protection and marine coating business.

the coating can withstand extreme temperatures to protect carbon steel and stainless steel substrates. This coating is widely used in refineries, petrochemical plants, paper mills and power plants

the acquisition of consociocomex

the failure of Sherwin Williams, a manufacturer of paint and coating products, in Mexico gave PPG a chance

ppg said at the end of June this year that it would purchase consorcio Comex, a leading paint company, for us $3.2 billion. Prior to this, Sherwin Williams gave up its efforts to acquire Comex in April due to the rejection of transactions by Mexican antitrust authorities for many times

this M & a transaction can bring PPG leading architectural coatings business in Mexico and Central America,

while the company's architectural coatings business in this region is almost negligible. COMEX is a privately held company that sells its products through its approximately 3600 stores and regional retailers, wholesalers and direct sales channels. COMEX is mainly engaged in the production and sales of coatings and related products

recently, another market news came out that PPG wanted to acquire Valspar or garberry...

no matter whether the rumors are true or whether they can be realized, at least the industry feels that PPG is under the pressure of continuous expansion through large-scale mergers and acquisitions, and has the momentum to replace AkzoNobel and become a new brother in the coating industry


it is said that some people resign and return to their hometown, while others rush to the examination room on a snowy night

while a large number of chemical enterprises continue to subtract and weaken their identity as "chemical enterprises" by stripping chemical businesses, BASF has been adding up and acquiring a large number of related businesses
