Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, (1) Merger Sub I will merge with and into Nexeo (the “Initial Merger”), with Nexeo continuing as the surviving entity and a wholly owned subsidiary of Univar, and (2) immediately following the Initial Merger, Nexeo will merge with and into Merger Sub II (the “Subsequent Merger” and, together with the Initial Merger, the “Mergers”), with Merger Sub II surviving the Subsequent Merger as a wholly owned subsidiary of Univar.
