“We want to complement our portfolio and strengthen our position in attractive markets via targeted acquisitions,” Hans Van Bylen told shareholders at the group’s annual general meeting.

Henkel last month made a binding offer to buy Darex Packaging Technologies from GCP Applied Technologies (GCP.N) for $1.05 billion (0.84 billion pounds).
