Westlake to Acquire Hexion’s Global Epoxy Business


In the twelve months ended September 30, 2021, Hexion’s epoxy business had net sales of approximately $1.5 billion. “Light-weighting is a critical feature for the manufacture of structural components for automobiles and for renewable energy, particularly the composite blades used by wind turbines, and epoxies are key ingredients for these sustainable products,” said Westlake President and Chief Executive Officer Albert Chao. Westlake is a global manufacturer and supplier of materials and innovative products that enhance life every day. Actual results could differ materially, based on factors including, but not limited to: the timing to consummate the proposed transaction; the conditions to closing of the proposed transaction may not be satisfied or the closing of the proposed transaction otherwise may not occur; the risk that regulatory approval is not obtained or is obtained subject to conditions that are not anticipated; the diversion of management time on transaction-related issues; and other risks and uncertainties described in Westlake’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020, which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) in February 2021, Westlake’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2021, which was filed with the SEC in November 2021, Westlake’s recent Current Reports on Form 8-K, and Westlake’s other SEC filings. These filings also discuss some of the important risk factors that may affect Westlake’s business, results of operations and financial condition.
