To Borealis the 50% of Novealis owned by Nova Chemicals

According to an agreement signed in recent days, Borealis will buy Nova Chemicals’ 50% ownership interest in Novealis Holdings.


Formed in 2018, Novealis is the joint venture between affiliates of Borealis and Nova Chemicals, which subsequently formed a 50/50 joint venture with an affiliate of Total to launch Bayport Polymers in Houston, Texas, US.


Closing of the acquisition is subject to customary regulatory approvals and other conditions but is not subject to any financing condition. The parties expect the transaction to close in the first half of 2020.
