Monheim, Germany - Specialty chemicals supplier Cognis announced that it has invited mergers and acquisitions specialist Lincoln International to conduct a review of the strategic options for its Pulcra Chemicals subsidiary.

In July of this year, Cognis’ Process Chemicals strategic business unit became a legally separate company, trading under the name of Pulcra Chemicals. This step allows Cognis to concentrate on the three core business areas of Care Chemicals, Nutrition & Health, and Functional Products. Lincoln International has been tasked with finding a suitable investor or partner for Pulcra Chemicals.
