BANGKOK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 04, 2011

Nexant (www.nexant.com) announced today that its Energy & Chemicals Consulting (E&CC) team played an instrumental role in two major chemical industry initial public offerings—the recently completed IPO for Petronas Chemicals Group Bhd., the petrochemicals unit of Malaysia’s state oil company, and the recent IPO for AZ Electronic Materials (AZ EM), owned by Carlyle/Vestar.

Petronas Chemicals raised $4.1 billion in the world’s largest chemicals IPO to date. The AZ EM IPO surged on its debut, with a valuation of $1.5 billion.
