The article presents information on a report in a Düsseldorf, Germany, newspaper claiming that Lanxess has met representatives of the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia to discuss an acquisition of Degussa. Some political leaders have suggested a separate sale of Degussa and RAG energy subsidiary, Steag, could generate more money for a proposed coal trust than the initial public offering planned by RAG chairman Werner Müller.
