PPG Industries recently announced the signing of a share purchase agreement to acquire Dyrup A/S, a European coatings company based in Copenhagen, Denmark, from its owner, Monberg & Thorsen, a public holding company. The total transaction value, including assumed debt, is around €135 million (~ $200 million). The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter of this year, subject to regulatory approvals, customary closing conditions and consultation with appropriate employee representative bodies.

Dyrup is a European producer of architectural coatings (particularly wood stains) and specialty products, with 2010 sales of approximately €190 million (~ $270 million). It employs about 950 people and operates six manufacturing facilities in Europe.

“The acquisition of Dyrup would expand PPG’s European architectural coatings business by extending our geographic presence in the region and by bolstering our wood care product offerings, an end-user segment where we today have a modest presence,” said Pierre-Marie De Leener, executive vice president, Architectural Coatings–EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa), PPG; and president, PPG Europe.

De Leener said that anticipated synergies, including improved raw material procurement, are expected to result in Dyrup achieving EBITDA margins in the near term that will be at a level consistent with PPG’s existing European architectural business.

“Dyrup’s operations and sales channels would be a great complementary fit with PPG’s structure,” he said. “The transaction will expand PPG’s growth in several key countries, including Poland, France and Denmark, and further establish PPG in several regions where we have limited or no architectural coatings presence, especially in Portugal, Spain and Germany. We believe this acquisition presents an excellent opportunity for customers of both companies, as well as a means to profitably grow PPG’s European architectural coatings business beyond organic opportunities.”
