Invista, one of the world’s largest integrated producers of chemical intermediates, polymers, and fibres based in the US, has announced that the company is exploring strategic alternatives for its apparel and advanced textiles business. These alternatives include potentially selling, or retaining and further investing in the business within Invista.

Comprised of a line-up of powerful, global consumer brands—including Lycra and Coolmax fibre, the business delivers comfort and fashion in premium garments and maintains a presence in every major region of the world.

Jeff Gentry, Invista chairman and CEO said, “A key element of our market-based management business philosophy is to continuously assess the external value of our assets against our internal value to make sure that the asset is owned by the company that values it most highly.”

“The apparel business is a strategic part of our portfolio—we are extremely pleased with the results of the business and remain confident in its continued and future success. We are simply considering all available options. In the event that no other company values the business more than we do, we will gladly hold the business and continue to invest for the future,” he added.

Details about the business and exploration process are confidential. Invista has retained Goldman, Sachs & Co. to assist the company in exploring strategic alternatives. (GK)
