Item 1.01 — Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


Equity and Asset Purchase Agreement


On August 9, 2022, Huntsman International LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Huntsman”), Archroma Operations S.à.r.l., a Luxembourg société à responsabilité limitée (the “Archroma Operations”) and Archroma Germany GmbH, a German company with limited liability (“Archroma Germany”) and solely for purposes set forth in the Purchase Agreement, SKES Investment 2 S.à r.l. (the Archroma Financing Party”) and together with Archroma Operations and the Archroma Germany, “Archroma”), entered into an Equity and Asset Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”), pursuant to which, subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions, Archroma will acquire (1) all of the equity of certain Huntsman subsidiaries and (2) certain assets and liabilities of certain other Huntsman subsidiaries, in each case which comprise of Huntsman’s “Textile Effects” business segment (collectively, the “Business” and such transaction, the “Acquisition”).




On the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Purchase Agreement, which has been approved by Huntsman Corporation’s and Huntsman’s respective board of directors and board of managers, at the closing of the Acquisition (the “Closing”), Archroma will purchase the Business for total consideration of $717,573,000 (the “Purchase Price”). The Purchase Price is subject to Closing and post-Closing adjustments for deviations from net working capital, net indebtedness and assumed net underfunded pension obligations of the Business and a portion of Purchase Price, not to exceed $80,000,000, will be in the form of preferred equity certificates of the Archroma Financing Party (an indirect parent of Archroma Operations).


Conditions to the Acquisition


The consummation of the Acquisition is subject to certain closing conditions, including, among others, (a) the absence of adverse laws or orders, (b) the approval of the Acquisition under the relevant laws in Brazil, China, Colombia, Germany, India, Pakistan and Vietnam, (c) the representations and warranties of Huntsman, Archroma and Archroma Germany being true and correct, subject to the materiality standards contained in the Purchase Agreement, (d) material compliance by each party with its covenants, and (e) other conditions and closing deliverables as further described in the Purchase Agreement.


Certain Other Terms of the Purchase Agreement


The Purchase Agreement contains customary representations, warranties, indemnities and covenants, including covenants providing for Huntsman to conduct the Business in all material respects in the ordinary course during the period between the execution of the Purchase Agreement and the Closing.


The foregoing summary does not purport to be a complete description and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Purchase Agreement, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 2.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.


The Purchase Agreement has been attached as an exhibit to this report to provide investors and security holders with information regarding its terms. It is not intended to provide any other factual information about Huntsman or to modify or supplement any factual disclosures about Huntsman in its public reports filed with the SEC. The Purchase Agreement includes representations, warranties and covenants of Huntsman, made solely for the purposes of the Purchase Agreement and which may be subject to important qualifications and limitations agreed to by Huntsman, Archroma and Archroma Germany in connection with the negotiated terms of the Purchase Agreement. Moreover, some of those representations and warranties may not be accurate or complete as of any specified date, may be subject to a contractual standard of materiality different from those generally applicable to Huntsman’s SEC filings or may have been used for purposes of allocating risk among Huntsman, Archroma and Archroma Germany rather than establishing matters as facts.
