"I thought Dow (Chemical) paid a pretty full price for Rohm & Haas , so the Rohm & Haas shareholders you could argue are getting the better of this deal, but in return Dow is getting an excellent asset that was selling at a discount that the market was not recognizing, so it did improve their growth and it reduced their cyclicality, so overall it’s a good deal for both companies…Given the selloff in the Dow stock following the deal, this may not be a bad time to step up to the plate.
