HOUSTON (ICIS)--Eastman Chemical does not consider the photovoltaic assets it took on when it acquired Solutia as a core business and may eventually divest them, the CEO of the US-based producer said on Friday.
“It would be really hard for me say that [photovoltaic] is core for Eastman,” Jim Rogers told analysts during the company’s third-quarter results conference call.
“I think that long-term there is value there, it’s hard for me to believe that there isn’t somebody else who would see more value, or that it would be more core for, than Eastman,” ?xml:namespace>
“But we haven’t made any decisions on that yet,” he added.
