FRANKFURT Nov 12 German consumer goods group
Henkel said it had not changed its acquisition
strategy and that it would continue to look at opportunities if
they were a good strategic fit and available at the right price.
Chief executive Kasper Rorsted declined on Tuesday to
comment on if the group was in talks over any acquisitions,
saying a deal would only be announced when appropriate.
Henkel's last major purchase was that of National Starch in
2008 for 3.7 billion euros ($5 billion) to expand its adhesives
division. With around 4 billion euros available now for buys,
analysts have been expecting a deal this year.
