FRANKFURT, GERMANY: Private Equity firm CVC Capital Partners has sold about 15 million shares in Evonik Industries AG for €34.60 apiece, JP Morgan, which is one of the bookrunners, said on Monday.

After the placement, which will yield €520 million ($572.16 million), the buyout firm will have a 6.2 percent stake in the German chemicals group, down from the 9.4 percent it had after the placement of a 4.7 percent stake in May.

Evonik shares closed down 1 percent at €35.45 on Monday after regular trading.

Since March CVC has sold Evonik shares worth about €1.75 billion.

JP Morgan and Bank of America were the joint global coordinators of the placement, which started with 12 million shares and was raised to 15 million shares.
