INSIGHTS FROM 20 EXPERT SPEAKERS!
Market dynamics in the specialty chemicals industry play a significant role in the relationships among private equity firms and strategic players.
Witness the revolving door that Royal Adhesives & Sealants passed through. American Securities sold Royal to H. B. Fuller after American held it for only a couple of years. Royal grew through successive private equity investors, starting with Edgewater Capital in 2001. Its next PE owner, Quad-C Management, sold it to Arsenal Capital, which in turn passed it along to American.
Other dynamics involve megamergers -- like the DowDuPont combination -- which are launching divestitures of non-core specialty chemicals assets to streamline the combined businesses and meet regulatory demands. Those asset sales are also creating very attractive buying opportunities for PE firms. As a result, PE firms are enjoying a favorable fundraising environment for investing in the specialty chemicals sector.
On the other hand, the appetite for M&A by cash-rich strategics is driving EBITDA multiples into the 10x-12x range, high enough to scare off some PE firms -- although still others, namely contrarians like Arsenal and Audax, are stepping up to bid against the corporates! Meanwhile, leverage has been creeping higher over the past year, increasing downside risk.
