PPG Industries has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with ICI India Ltd., Mumbai, India, to facilitate the acquisition of ICI’s premium automotive refinish business.

The closing is scheduled for mid-March and is subject to certain conditions. The transaction is valued at approximately $12 million.
“This acquisition will serve as a platform for continued growth of our automotive refinish business in India, which we manage through our joint venture, Asian PPG Industries Ltd.,” said J.
