“We are pleased to complete this transaction and welcome Solutia to the global Eastman team,” said Jim Rogers, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Eastman.
“The addition of these strong businesses, unique technologies, and highly differentiated products is expected to contribute strong cash generation and a solid return on capital to Eastman.
“We are confident this acquisition strengthens our position as a top-tier specialty chemicals company and establishes a powerful combined platform with significant opportunities for organic growth. We are committed to the successful integration of Solutia and look forward to delivering the projected growth and synergies from this combination.”
With the acquisition of Solutia, Eastman has made structural and reporting changes resulting in five reporting segments: Additives and Functional Products, Adhesives and Plasticizers, Advanced Materials, Fibers, and Specialty Fluids and Intermediates. This structure takes into consideration the strategies, operating models, and sales channels that the various businesses employ to be leaders in their respective markets.
Solutia’s Photovoltaics business will be managed as a developing business initiative and reported as “other” sales and operating earnings (loss).
The company will report third quarter 2012 financial results under the new reporting structure.
