Launching An Independent Company Under Adverse Conditions
The Chemours Company
DuPont (NYSE: DD), a leading global specialty chemicals and agricultural company, planned to separate and spin-off its performance chemicals businesses as The Chemours Company (NYSE: CC). Chemours retained FTI Consulting to advise the company on preparation for the spin-off and listing on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).
Our Role With Chemours
FTI Consulting worked closely with company management to develop stakeholder messaging and question and answer documents for the offering roadshow, various press releases leading up to the spin-off, internal communications to employees, and media talking points for the launch of the company. FTI Consulting also advised on investor and media engagement around the launch of the new company.
Chemours, now a global leader in titanium technologies, fluoroproducts, and chemical solutions, completed its spin-off from DuPont and launched as an independent, publicly listed company despite facing considerable economic and structural headwinds.
Chemours continues to be an FTI Consulting client.
