The author offers opinions on the chemical industry firm Innospec. The company's interest in acquiring butadiene producer TPC Group is said to be a beneficial move for the firm only if it employs a private equity fund as a partner in the acquisition, as Innospec's interest in the merger is related to a small part of TPC's operations in which it produces fuel and lubricant additives.
