LANXESS has received proceeds of around EUR 1.4 billion from Saudi Aramco completing sales of its 50% interest in ARLANXEO
LANXESS completed the sale of its remaining 50% stake in the rubber company ARLANXEO to Saudi Aramco. All relevant antitrust authorities have granted the necessary approvals for the transaction announced in August 2018.
 
Upon completion of the transaction, the remaining stake of LANXESS in ARLANXEO was transferred to the former joint venture partner Saudi Aramco. In return, LANXESS received proceeds of approximately EUR 1.4 billion. With the transaction proceeds, LANXESS strengthens its financial base and significantly reduces its net financial liabilities.

ARLANXEO was founded on April 1, 2016 as a joint venture of LANXESS and Saudi Aramco. The company headquartered in Maastricht, Netherlands, generated sales of around EUR 3.2 billion in 2017 and employs about 3,800 people at 20 production sites in nine countries. The company produces high-performance rubber for use in, for example, the automotive and tire industries, the construction industry, and the oil and gas industries.
 
The transfer of the business with synthetic rubber into the joint venture ARLANXEO was the foundation for LANXESS’ strategic realignment. Since then LANXESS has been focusing on growth in specialty chemicals markets and made various acquisitions in this area.
