Dow Chemical hires advisor to sell copolymer unit, Bloomberg reports

Dow Chemical (DOW) is looking for a buyer for a unit that makes copolymers used in food packaging in what will mark the first asset disposal required to achieve antitrust clearance for its $59B merger with DuPont (DD), Bloomberg reports, citing people with knowledge of the situation. Dow has hired a financial adviser to manage the sale of the unit, which generates roughly $150M in annual sales, the report says. DuPont is also making a list of potential asset disposals, the report says. Reference Link

Citi upgrades Dow and DuPont, says DowDuPont could be 'stock to own' in 2017
As previously reported, Citi analyst P.J. Juvekar upgraded shares of both Dow Chemical (DOW) and DuPont (DD), each to Buy from Hold, citing their "massive" cost-cutting opportunity after their proposed merger goes through as well as the potential for upside to the companies' stated $3B synergy target. If their deal gets completed, the combined Dow-DuPont would "be the stock to own in 2017," said Juvekar, who raised the firm's price target on DuPont shares to $76 from $72 and increased the target for Dow shares to $59 from $55.
