NKK, Kawasaki Tap Top Investment Banks To Negotiate Merger

Tuesday, July 10, 2001
In order to help negotiate its pending merger with Kawasaki Steel Corp., NKK Corp., has called upon Goldman Sachs Group Inc., while Kawasaki has reportedly hired Morgan Stanley Dean Witter to help with negotiations regarding the possible business transaction.

Earlier this year, the same two advisers were hired by Mitsui Chemicals Inc. and Sumitomo Chemical Co. to help negotiate the union of those two businesses, which will form the world's fifth-biggest chemical company.

A value for the steel and chemical mergers will be determined when the parties hammer out a ratio for their share swaps, likely to be later this year, the paper said.

The transactions are likely to be two of the biggest deals this year. Together they are reportedly valued at as much as $30 billion including debt.

In a statement issued last week, after shareholders of both companies approved their plan to merge under a holding company by 2002 and to combine their businesses by 2003, the companies said the ratio of their stock swap "will be determined by both companies, taking into consideration fairness opinion from independent professional institutions."
