Asahi Glass to acquire ADEKA

TOKYO, JAPAN: Asahi Glass Co Ltd (AGC) has made an agreement with ADEKA Corporation with respect to the acquisition of all 787,500 ordinary shares of Kashima Chemical Co Ltd held by ADEKA. Following the acquisition, Kashima Chemical will become AGC’s subsidiary in which AGC takes a 78.75 per cent stake. The shares are scheduled to be transferred on 25 December 2012.

Epichlorohydrin produced by Kashima Chemical is used as a raw material for epoxy resins and demand for this product is expected to remain strong into the future. As Kashima Chemical becomes a subsidiary of AGC, AGC’s Kashima plant located adjacent to Kashima Chemical will achieve a greater operational stability and improved cost competitiveness.
