“I could not be more energised about bringing together two highly innovative solutions companies into Mativ. We are on track with regulatory clearance approvals, our pre-integration teams are in place, and we have a clear path to over $65 million in synergies. Our customers and the investor community have responded very positively to the merger's compelling strategic and financial merits of the merger, underscored by an accelerated growth outlook. As a team, we could not be more excited as we prepare for this new beginning, as Mativ,” Julie Schertell, president and CEO of Neenah and named president and CEO of Mativ upon close, said in a statement.
