M&As: Axalta to acquire Chinese firm

Axalta, a supplier of liquid and powder coatings, is to acquire Anhui Shengran Insulating Materials Co., a Chinese producer of high-quality wire enamels used in a wide range of consumer electronics, electric vehicle, and industrial applications. The transaction is expected to close in the second quarter of 2021, subject to customary closing conditions. Financial terms have not been disclosed.
