Platform Specialty Products is pleased to announce the closing of our acquisition, Alent PLc, and to formally welcome all of the Alent employees to the Platform Specialty Products family!

Additionally, we are excited to announce the creation of MacDermid Performance Solutions, a division of Platform Specialty Products that combines our initial MacDermid operations with recently acquired businesses from Alent (Enthone and Alpha Assembly Materials) and OMG (Electronic Chemicals and Compugraphics). The new single entity will provide an enhanced innovation and service structure for customers around the world and at every step of the supply chain. We are also announcing the creation of MacDermid Enthone Electronics Solutions and MacDermid Enthone Industrial Solutions. With our combined resources, we have one of the largest technological and service oriented forces in the industry, offering the highest level of support in conjunction with our best-in-class products across a diversified global footprint that covers Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, North America, and South America. Alpha will continue to provide innovative materials and assembly solutions to support the global electronics and automotive industries.

Customers, supply chain partners, employees and investors will all benefit as we unify sales strategies, improve processes throughout the company, expand global reach, and continue to deliver the high quality products and services that all of you have come to expect. In the near-term, as we begin to build the best company possible from the combination of these businesses, your experience will not change. A comprehensive branding and integration effort will be deployed in the coming months, and in the interim we encourage you to reach out to your local company contacts with any questions about this announcement.

We look forward to working with you in this new era of specialty materials supply.
