Third Point Chief Executive Officer Daniel Loeb had called for The Dow Chemical Company (NYSE:DOW) to spin off its petrochemical unit, but been rebuffed. Dow "fundamentally disagrees" with Third Point's statements, which show little interest regarding benefits to long-term shareholders, Dow said in a statement. "Our board and management team are aggressively pursuing the best interests of all shareholders and managing the business for both the short and long term," Dow said. During an investors event on November 12, 2014 and November 14, 2014, Dow announced plans to increase its divestiture target to $7 billion-$8.5 billion by mid-2016.
