Tronox Limited to sell its Alkali Chemicals Business for $1.3 Billion
Tronox Limited, announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to sell its Alkali Chemicals business to Genesis Energy, L.P., a diversified midstream energy master limited partnership headquartered in Houston, Texas, for $1.325 billion in cash. The transaction is expected to close in the second half of 2017, subject to customary regulatory approvals and closing conditions.
Alkali Chemicals is the world's largest producer of natural soda ash with its mining and processing facilities located in Green River, Wyo. Alkali's products are used in glass manufacturing, detergents, baked goods, animal nutrition supplements, pharmaceuticals, and other essential products.
Peter Johnston, chief executive officer of Tronox, said: "We were pleased to have received significant interest in our Alkali business from multiple potential buyers. Genesis' proposal was the most compelling for its overall value, with its combination of price, favorable contract terms, speed to closing, committed financing, and expected ease of regulatory approvals. These considerations, in aggregate, provided the highest level of certainty to Tronox. We anticipate being able to close this transaction prior to our planned closing of the Cristal TiO2 acquisition.
"Alkali Chemicals has consistently delivered strong operational and financial performance. The caliber of the Alkali workforce and their commitment to safe, high-quality production are unmatched in the natural soda ash industry. I thank the leadership team and all Alkali employees for their contributions to Tronox," said Johnston.
The sale of Alkali Chemicals is the next step in positioning Tronox as the global leader in TiO2. The proceeds will be used to fund the majority portion of the cash consideration for the Cristal TiO2 acquisition, which is expected to close by the first quarter of 2018. As an integral part of this strategy, the company announced its intention to refinance a portion of its capital structure. Net debt leverage of approximately 4.5x trailing twelve months pro forma EBITDA before synergies is expected at the closing of the Cristal transaction.

Too many companies have one-dimensional business strategies for growth or driving profit, with little or no emphasis on sustainability and trust, and no integration of the three, according to Accenture. A new and unique performance index – the Competitive Agility Index – identifies the corporate leaders of the future across nine industries, including automotive and industrial, consumer goods and services, retail, life sciences, communications, electronics and hi-tech, energy, insurance and utilities.
Accenture Strategy conducted the analysis and built the Index from a set of nine separate performance measures to create a forward-looking view on potential future competitiveness. The analysis shows that the companies best positioned for competitiveness have an interdependent strategy focused equally on growth, profitability and sustainability and trust.
The opportunities uncovered in the Competitive Agility Index include the massive growth potential for automotive and industrial companies. The Index shows that companies in these sectors have a tremendous revenue growth opportunity – in the range of $1 billion per company – that can be achieved by an interdependent business strategy with equal focus on all three competitiveness dimensions.

Showa Denko Acquires Assets Concerning SiC from Nippon Steel &
Sumitomo Metal Group
Showa Denko, has decided to acquire assets concerning Sublimation - recrystallization Method to manufacture silicon carbide (SiC) wafers from Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal Corporation (NSSMC) and Nippon Steel & Sumikin Materials Co., Ltd. (NSMAT) by around the end of January 2018.
When compared with the mainstream silicon-based semiconductors, SiC-based power devices can operate under high-temperature, high-voltage, and high-current conditions, while substantially reducing energy loss. These features enable the production of smaller, lighter, and more energy efficient next-generation power control modules. On the other hand, development of full-SiC-based power modules including MOSFET (metal-oxide semiconductor field-effect transistor) requires SiC wafers with fewer crystal defects and further cost reduction.
SDK initiated research and development of SiC epitaxial wafers in 2005, and now produces and sells 3,000 epitaxial wafers per month*. This time, SDK aims to improve the quality of its products through the acquisition of assets currently owned by Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal Group. Read more...

Hanergy Thin Film Power Limited (HKSE) announced that its wholly-owned US subsidiary, Alta Devices, has signed a
memorandum with AUDI AG Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on strategic cooperation in thin-film solar cell technology. The two parties will jointly take over the " Audi / Hanergy FineFilm Solar Cell Research and Development Project".
As a first step, Audi and Hanergy will present the thin film solar cell integration solution to the panoramic roof of Audi models. It is designed to extend the vehicle's rolling capacity - by providing solar power to its internal electrical system - including air conditioning and other electrical appliances. In the long term, by leveraging technologies from both sides, the two companies plan a gradual transition to the use of thin film solar energy technology to provide solar power to the battery of the transmission system to provide additional primary energy To vehicles. The project will not only contribute to Audi's clear vision of emission-free mobility, But also advance the application of thin film solar energy technology to the overall primary energy generation. By the end of 2017, the two sides jointly plan to present an Audi vehicle prototype exhibiting an integrated sunroof prototype solution.
Audi takes the zero emission target seriously. That's why, in addition to innovative fuels, electric drive systems are essential for future Audi cars. By 2020, the product line will include three attractively designed efficient battery electric cars. By 2025, Audi plans to deliver to its customers a third of its cars with fully electric transmission systems.
Based on this strategic configuration, renewable energy - especially solar energy with the characteristics of mobile energy - has become very attractive for Audi to achieve sustainable mobility. Since light-bodied vehicles and limited ceiling areas require solar cells with a high energy-to-weight ratio, gallium arsenide (GaAs), a thin, high-efficiency, thin-film, flexible and light solar energy technology has emerged as The main option for Audi's panoramic sunroof solution.
