Taminco, a specialty chemical company owned by Apollo Global Management, intends to sell approximately 15.8 million shares on the NYSE for between $18 and $20 per share. It plans to trade under the symbol TAM. Post-offering, Apollo will retain its controlling stake in the company; its current 94.7% position will lower to 71.8% on a fully diluted basis. Taminco is a Belgium-based producer and marketer of amines, which are organic compounds that can be reacted with other chemicals to produce alkylamine derivatives. Alkylamines are used in a wide range of applications in industrial, consumer, pharmaceutical and agricultural end-use segments, and the range is still expanding. Apollo acquired Taminco in December 2011 from CVC Capital Partners for about €1.1 billion ($1.4 billion).
