Grace Plans
To Divest ABS
ABS of DeForest Wis-
consin, announces the
recent formal decision
by its parent company,
W.R. Grace of Boca
Raton, Florida, to divest
Last week, W.R.
Grace announced to
ABS officials its inten
tion to publicly desig
nate ABS, along with
certain other business
es, as a “discontinued
unit,” and begin the of
ficial process of divest
This divestment deci
sion does not reflect on
the ABS business or the
performance of its em
ployees. Rather, it is a
decision to focus Grace
on its core business
areas. During an ex
change of views which
took place in the course
of the recent ABS
Strategic Business Plan
presentation to Grace
management Grace ex
pressed its belief in the
ABS business, the ac
tions taken to strength
en ABS, and supported
the objectives and
strategies set forth in
the ABS Strategic Plan.
“I view this decision
as a very positive devel
opment,” said Jack
Shelton, ABS president.
“Both Grace and ABS
are committed to mak
ing this a smooth transi
tion that is not only in
the best interest of
Grace, but also enables
us, the ABS global
team, to continue the
process of strategically
developing a multi-cul
tural genetics organiza
tion that responds and
reacts to the changing
needs of our diverse
customers. The process
will be carefully man
aged in a fashion non
disruptive to the ABS
business plan or to the
products and services
offered to ABS custom
ers around the world.
ABS management
will work with Grace
management in the ac
tual divestment activi
ties. At this time, no
legitimate offers on
ABS are pending, and a
few weeks will be
necessary to prepare
data for Grace to initiate
