ICL To Acquire Thermphos' P2S5 Business

TEL-AVIV, Israel, February 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

ICL (TASE:ICL) today announced that its ICL Performance Products operating segment ("ICL-PP") has agreed to acquire the phosphorus pentasulfide (P2S5) business assets and operations of Thermphos International B.V (NL), located in Knapsack, Germany.

P 2S 5 is a specialty ingredient used in the manufacture of highly technical materials such as lubrication oil additives, pesticides, mining chemicals and other products. Due to its very specialized nature, P 2S 5 is currently manufactured in only a limited number of plants in the world, and ICL-PP is a leading manufacturer of P 2S 5 in North America.  

"This acquisition complements ICL's global presence in phosphorus-based specialty ingredients", commented  Mr. Charles Weidhas, President and CEO of ICL-PP. "It is the next step in the global expansion strategy that we have been following for the past decade, carrying out complementary acquisitions that have transformed our Company into a global leader in agriculture, food, water and specialty materials markets".
