|On October 2nd, Sandell Asset Management issued a press release and a second white paper criticizing TPC Group Inc’s (TPCG) proposed $40/share going-private transaction, stating that the sale process was flawed, tainted by self-dealing and based upon a valuation opinion that was biased by overly-negative projections for the business. |
Sandell Asset Management reiterated their intention to vote against the sale.
NOTE: On Monday October 8 TPC said it received a buyout proposal from Innospec Inc. (IOSP.O) worth $44 to $46/share.
The Catalyst Equity Research Report previously covered TPCG in our September 7 report, highlighting Sandell’s 7.1% “active” ownership stake in TPCG and their opposition to the company’s $40/share going-private transaction.
