The article presents the author's views on Lanxess AG. He states that the company had been able to make impressive financial progress, mainly through strict cost discipline and divestments but the company needs to introduce some strategic changes to attract the shareholders. He mentions that absence of any sizeable acquisition reflects the problems faced by Lanxess. According to him the company should come up with some strong acquisition plans to maintain its position in the market.
