EverArc, a London-listed acquisition vehicle, has agreed to buy U.S.-based firefighting products maker Perimeter Solutions as part of a reverse takeover valued at $2 billion, it said on Wednesday.
The British Virgin Islands-based company said the deal would see Perimeter becoming part of a newly-formed Luxembourg company called Perimeter Solutions S.A. which will be listed on a U.S. stock exchange.
Perimeter Solutions, which also makes lubricant additives, was established in 2018 when SK Capital Partners bought it from Israel Chemicals although its roots in fire safety and oil additives stretch back over 50 years.
