Lumena, a miner of thenardite, triggered red flags "for its rapid growth, short listing history, high concentration of customers and ownership, and poorer quality of earnings and cash flow," said Moody's.
The acquisition will help Lumena expand into resins used in emissions reduction and the automotive industry, adding to the thenardite it makes that's used in detergents and medical products.
Nov. 8 (Bloomberg) -- Lumena Resources Corp. rose to its highest level since September 2009 in Hong Kong trading after the second-largest producer of thenardite agreed to buy a resin maker for HK$11.05 billion ($1.43 billion).
The company focuses on extracting fluorescent thenardite, used in making everything from cleaning products and textiles to lighting and pharmaceuticals.
Suolang Duoji, a private entrepreneur with holdings that include the Hong Kong-listed thenardite producer Lumena, will hold the remaining 20 percent stake.
