KIK Custom Acquires Chemtura's BioLab/Bayrol Consumer Products Business

KIK Custom Products Inc. said Thursday it completed its acquisition of the consumer products business of Chemtura Corp. (CHMT) for an adjusted purchase price of $300 million.

The company said the deal had a $15 million reduction to reflect the resolution of certain pre-closing matters by the parties. The company also said the purchase price is subject to a post-closing adjustment for working capital and assumed pension liabilities.

"This acquisition marks a major step in the strategic growth of our company," said Jeff Nodland, KIK's CEO.

Toronto, Canada-based KIK is one of North America's largest contract and private label manufacturers of consumer, institutional and industrial products. KIK entered the pool care business in 2011 with the acquisition of US-based Chem-Lab Products Inc.
