ABSTRACT
The article looks at the merger and acquisition activity in the global chemical distribution industry. Over the past two years, the vast majority of chemical distributors' acquisitions in Europe and in the U.S. were completed by distributors owned by private equity, mostly through buy-and-build strategies, which are significantly reshaping the industry. Private equity investors are reshaping the chemical distribution industry by dynamically acquiring companies from private owners, chemical producers and conglomerates.
