Huntsman – Tronox Transaction

Mary Coleman, supported by a Compass Lexecon team in Washington, DC including David Weiskopf, Anna Koyfman, and Nicolas Shea, provided economic analysis related to Huntsman’s proposed acquisition of certain assets of Tronox. The economic analysis focused on the titanium dioxide industry. Compass Lexecon participated extensively in written submissions and presentations to the United States Federal Trade Commission. The FTC ultimately decided not to issue a second request, terminating its investigation of the proposed transaction. Huntsman was represented by Billy Vigdor and Dionne Lomax of Vinson & Elkins LLP, and Tronox was represented by Marimichael Skubel of Kirkland & Ellis LLP.
