Private equity firm Carlyle Group LP-backed German specialty chemicals group Atotech Deutschland GmbH has applied to list its shares on the New York Stock Exchange, according to a Jan. 15 filing.
The company's proposed maximum aggregate offering is $100.0 million, calculated solely to determine the registration fee.
Atotech intends to use the net proceeds from the offering to redeem $299.1 million aggregate principal amount of its outstanding 8.75%/9.50% senior notes due in 2023 and to pay related fees and expenses. Any excess proceeds will be channeled toward general corporate purposes and/or repayment of outstanding debt under its senior secured credit facilities.
Citigroup Global Markets Inc., Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC, BofA Securities Inc. and J.P. Morgan Securities LLC act as underwriters for the IPO.
Atotech provides specialty chemicals and equipment for printed circuit boards and semiconductors.
