July 29, 2013 | APPEARED IN VOLUME 91, ISSUE 30

Specialty chemical maker Ashland is ­considering its options, including a sale, for its water technologies business and has retained Citi to assist in the process. The business contributed 21% of Ashland’s $8.0 billion in sales for the 12 months ending June 30 but only 12% of its before-tax earnings. Separately, the company has initiated a process to sell its elastomers business, which had about $330 million in sales in the same 12-month period.
