Rumour - Univar Exploring IPO

Univar, the number 2 chemical distributor by turnover, is said to be exploring an initial public offering that could value the private equity-owned company at more than $6 billion. Univar's preparations for a possible public offering highlight the resurgence of the U.S. chemicals sector, which has benefitted from cheap feedstock on the back of low natural gas prices.

Neville I have had a couple of meetings recently with people from the investment bank/PE fraternity both talking about the prospects of an European IPO (IMCD) in next 12 months or so. Can confirm they also mentioned Univar in this context too.

Thanks David, I am guessing that Azelis may also be in the same situation.
