As has been demonstrated by our two DyStar purchases this year, we are deep value buyers, who look to buy assets with great brands, good distribution, all at rock bottom prices, all of which add significantly to increasing shareholder value through increased Return on Capital, which is our core focus at Kiri. It is our intention to build a sustainable dyes and chemicals global organization, For that, we needed a powerful sales organization in North and Central America and maintain the retailer connection."
