Rockwood Holdings Reportedly Cancelled Combined Auction For Titanium Dioxide And Performance Additives Units
Jun 21 13
Rockwood Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:ROC) has cancelled the combined auction for its titanium dioxide and performance additives units after failing to attract the offers it was hoping for, reported Reuters citing four people familiar with the matter. The people said that Rockwood Holdings was in talks with private equity firms to sell the assets for between $1.5 billion and $2 billion but ended the process after it became apparent that such offers were not attainable. One of the people said that spinning off the assets instead is now an option that Rockwood is considering. People familiar with the matter said that among the firms vying for the assets were The Blackstone Group L.P. (NYSE:BX), Advent International Corporation, Apollo Global Management, LLC (NYSE:APO), Bain Capital, LLC, Golden Gate Capital and Rhône Group LLC. The people later added that uncertainty over the titanium dioxide business, whose earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) were seen by some private equity firms as turning negative this year, still weighed on the process. Some banks were also uncomfortable with financing their offers, they added. All the people asked not to be identified because the talks were confidential. Rockwood declined to comment.
