CHARLESTON, SC, Nov. 14, 2017 (Local News) -Government antitrust officials are seeking more details about a North Charleston chemical maker’s planned buyout of a competing business, though the deal is still expected to be approved.
Ingevity Corp. said the Federal Trade Commission asked for additional information and materials about the $315 million acquisition of a Georgia-Pacific Corp. subsidiary.
The agency made its Nov. 9 request under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, according to the company. Ingevity described it as a “standard part of the regulatory approval process for transactions of this type” and that it will “continue to work closely and cooperatively” with the commission.
