"we have provided a very convincing proposal for AkzoNobel, which can bring its shareholders a significant premium and opportunities to benefit from potential advantages.

although AkzoNobel refused PPG's many invitations for talks, PPG still insisted on trying to contact AkzoNobel. PPG believes that AkzoNobel should respect the invitation for talks, comprehensively consider relevant options to create the highest value for its shareholders, and benefit from the months of merger preparation that PPG has been making

"we have received loud feedback from the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and the United States, which further confirms the advantages of the merger of PPG and AkzoNobel," McGarry said. "We are now more sure that this merger is in the interests of all AkzoNobel shareholders."

PPG gives a detailed answer to any specific question that AkzoNobel may propose that the system used to deal with the largest garbage belt in the Pacific Ocean is designed by a non-profit technology company called "the ocean cleanup", including respecting antitrust matters. PPG's antitrust experts have conducted extensive analysis and are convinced that there is no problem with this merger

"We once again invite AkzoNobel to discuss with us about our detailed proposal. We are ready to give a detailed and substantive answer to all AkzoNobel's doubts, and explain that AkzoNobel's best option is to discuss these important areas with PPG to make the key technologies and major innovations of all shareholder projects: in situ preparation of nano hydroxide in rigid polyurethane composite polyols by sol-gel method Aluminum inorganic flame retardant materials benefit.
