Huntsman making 'strong allegations' in suit against Rockwood, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Frank Mitsch said that in a "noteworthy lawsuit" filed last week by Huntsman (HUN) the company makes "strong allegations" and demands a jury trial regarding "massive fraud orchestrated" by Rockwood (ROC) and its executives. The suit includes charges that the latter lied about the performance of the Bluebird technology, which they allegedly knew would not work, Mitsch noted. Huntsman became the world's second-largest pigments producer two years ago after buying more than $1B in plants from Rockwood.
