Executive Commentary

Chief Executive Officer Benjamin Gliklich said, “As environmental concerns and regulation continue to drive change within the specialty chemicals industry and our existing supply chain, we continue to invest in technology to help our customers meet and exceed these requirements. The acquisition of DMP and formation of MacDermid Envio Solutions allow Element Solutions to offer its customers capabilities that are both needed today and will be needed more over time. DMP’s existing footprint is in North America, but its technology is relevant around the world. There is a great growth opportunity in taking this business to our global customer base. Environmental matters are existential for our customers, and we are excited to help provide them with yet another set of critical solutions. We are very happy to welcome the DMP team into the ESI family.”

Mr. Gliklich continued, “MacDermid Envio Solutions will launch with a modest $20 million of annual sales; however, we have greater ambitions for it in the near term. The solutions we provide require minimal investment and have short payback periods for our customers, in addition to the significant benefit for our planet. Several of the technologies in this portfolio are novel to international markets and with modest customer education, these technologies should generate strong traction. Sales into this market will be completely additive to the existing Element Solutions businesses and a growth driver for our company. MacDermid Envio Solutions will be a case study in doing well by doing good.”
