At Northcoast Research in Cleveland, research Vice President Kevin Hocevar said he has heard "mixed reaction" from Schulman shareholders about the proposed deal.
"Some [shareholders] think they can get Ferro at the right price, but others have had more of a negative reaction," he said. Hocevar added that potential deals proposed for Ferro in recent years have been for less than what Schulman is currently offering.

"Either one way or the other, Schulman will have to pay more," said Kevin Hocevar, analyst with Cleveland-based Northcoast Research, who covers both companies. He said he does not own shares in either business. Ferro and Schulman should complement each other if the sale takes place, he said.
"I think it's a good move on Schulman's part," Hocevar said. "I think it's a positive for Schulman."
Hocevar said he would not be surprised if other coatings companies take a look at buying Ferro.
It would be a major move for Schulman if it succeeds in buying Ferro, he said.
Schulman in recent years has a proven track record of successful acquisitions, he said. "They've really done a great job."

"The growth prospects of Valspar compared to peers is in line if not better," Kevin Hocevar, a Cleveland-based analyst at Northcoast Research, said in a phone interview.
Buying Valspar, whose paint is sold at Lowe's, would give PPG three of the four main architectural paint brands at home-improvement retailers Home Depot and Lowe's, said Hocevar at Northcoast Research.
That would be appealing to PPG because the unit's products fetch a higher price since they must be approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Hocevar said.
"PPG would like to own inside-the-can type of technology, because it's a higher-margin product," he said.
