RAG-Stiftung Key Developments

RAG Seeks Acquisitions

RAG-Stiftung is seeking acquisitions. RAG's future plans include investing in medium-sized German-based companies, which are not active in the chemical industry.

RAG-Stiftung Denies Interest In Lanxess

RAG-Stiftung which holds a 68% majority in Evonik Industries AG (DB:EVK) is not interested in acquiring Lanxess AG (XTRA:LXS) but would rather reduce its exposure to the chemicals sector. RAG Chief Executive Werner Muller said RAG was too exposed to the chemicals sector and would seek to reduce its stake in Evonik over the long term. However, RAG had no immediate plans to reduce the stake, he added. Muller said RAG was not interested in taking a stake in LANXESS, responding to repeated speculation that Evonik may want to take over its Germany-based rival. Muller said RAG was rather working on plans to take long-term majority stakes in German medium-sized firmsthat are not exposed to the chemical sector.

RAG Intends To Reduce Evonik Stake

RAG-Stiftung intends to reduce its stake in Evonik Industries AG (DB:EVK) to over 25%. Werner Mueller, Chief Executive Officer of RAG said, "Sooner or later we will sell Evonik shares and we aim to reduce our stake in the long term to over 25%."
