Indorama Netherlands gets regulatory nod to buy 51% of Turkey's Sasa Polyester

ISTANBUL (Turkey), January 13 (SeeNews) – Netherlands-based polyethylene terephthalate (PET) producer Indorama Netherlands has received the Turkish Competition Authority’s approval to acquire 51% of local polyester products maker Sasa Polyester Sanayi, the regulator said.

Indorama Netherlands will purchase the stake from Turkish conglomerate Sabanci Holding [BIST:SAHOL], the competition watchdog said in a statement on Monday.

Sabanci Holding announced in April 2014 that it had agreed to divest its 51% stake in Sasa Polyester to Indorama Netherlands for $62 million (52 million euro) in cash.

Indorama Netherlands is a subsidiary of Thailand-based integrated polyester chain producer Indorama Ventures Public Co Ltd.
