Ludwigshafen, Germany 08 June 2015 -- BASF announced 8 June 2015 that it has signed a contract to sell its global paper hydrous kaolin (PHK) business to Imerys, a leader in mineral-based specialty solutions for industry, based in Paris, France.

The divestiture is subject to approval by the relevant merger control authorities. Closing of the transaction is expected to take place during the third quarter of 2015. The parties have agreed not to disclose the financial details of the transaction.
