Barington Capital Group Is Nominating Three Directors to the Board of Chemical Omnova Solutions

US activist investor Barington Capital Group is nominating three directors to the board of chemicals firm OMNOVA Solutions. The move comes after Barington last week called on OMNOVA to change strategies, in particular to sell its surfaces businesses, appoint new independent directors, and to separate the roles of CEO and chairman. The nominations include Joseph Gingo, who will be retiring as CEO of plastic compounds and resins maker A Schulman on 31 December, 2014. The former Goodyear executive took over as CEO of Schulman in 2008 after Barington called for changes at that company.

Barington Capital Urges OMNOVA To Undertake Startegic Review

Barington Capital Group, L.P. sent a letter to Kevin McMullen, the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of OMNOVA Solutions Inc. (NYSE:OMN), urging the company to undertake a broad strategic review. The letter stated: “The company has approximately $114 million in federal net operating loss carryforwards (NOLs) that could be used to offset the taxable gains related to the sale of U.S. based assets. We therefore recommend that the company retain a financial advisor to undertake a broad strategic review of OMNOVA's portfolio of businesses. We believe that such strategic review should include, among other things, a consideration of the divestiture of the company's Engineered Surfaces business as well as an assessment of potential accretive bolt-on acquisitions that would enhance the company's Performance Chemicals segment.”

OMNOVA Solutions Announces Authorization of Partial Redemption of Its 7.875% Senior Notes Due in 2018

The notes are available to be called as of November 1, 2014, at a price of 103.938%, plus accrued and unpaid interest.
