London-based Platform Acquisition Holdings Ltd is planning to acquire privately held, MacDermid Inc., for about $1.8bn. The target, MacDermid, makes specialized chemicals that are used by manufacturers of automobiles and consumer electronics, and in the offshore drilling industry. It would be recalled that last month, Platorm Acquisition had  bought Yankee Candle Co, the largest scented candle company in the United States, for $1.75bn from private equity owner Madison Dearborn Partners. Wen completed,  Platform Acquisition is to be renamed “Platform Specialty Products Corp” and its headquarters will be moved to the United States, while its stocks are to be listed on the NYSE.

I love...

…going on Tumblr after a game and reading all the Bruins posts. Especially if I had to miss the game, I know exactly what happened. 

Tonight was a good game, finally got a back to back win. Refreshing. Thomas played like a BEAST tonight! It was a perfect display of what we need from Timmy while we’re in our current goalie situation. Also, Lane Macdermid is shaping up to be a phenomenal asset! The kid has presence on the ice.

On another note, I’m going away to school this coming September and my dad has promised he’ll pay for me to have NHL center ice, so I can watch all the games on my laptop! SCORE! He’s the best.
