LyondellBasel valued Braskem at $11.4 billion in offer
May 29, 2018

SAO PAULO (Reuters) - LyondellBasell Industries (LYB.N) has valued Brazilian petrochemical company Braskem SA (BRKM5.SA) at 41.5 billion reais ($11.4 billion) in an offer to Brazilian conglomerate Odebrecht SA months ago, newspaper Valor Econ├┤mico reported on Thursday.

LyondellBasell made the offer in February but talks stalled in early May, the paper reported, as the conglomerate tries to refinance its debt with Brazilian lenders. The paper did not say how it obtained the information.

The paper said Lyondell was being advised by Morgan Stanley, and Odebrecht by Lazard Ltd.

LyondellBasell said, We do not comment on market rumors or speculation. Odebrecht, Lazard and Morgan Stanley did not immediately comment.

Most of Odebrechts stake in Braskem is pledged in collateral to Brazilian banks, and negotiations for refinancing of the conglomerate's debt are ongoing.
