    From CS website:

    Chemicals Group
    The Chemicals Group is the #1 chemical franchise on Wall Street, having been involved in 25 of the last 28 chemical equity transactions, approximately 50% of high yield offerings in the last two years, and more than 90 M&A transactions with combined value in excess of $125 billion since 1996. The Group has professionals in New York and London. The chemical sector investment banking market remains strong and is expected to grow, driven by:

    Significant increase in M&A activity by both financial sponsors as well as companies seeking to optimize their portfolios
    Strong equity issuance with expected follow-on offerings by recently listed companies
    Leveraged loans and high yield debt required by clients that seek capital to grow organically and through acquisitions

    Take that stuff with a grain of salt. It's the CS website after all; sounds like standard, propaganda-laden, pitch material. Every group at every bank will tell you they're #1 according to this, that, or the other.

    I've heard Citi has a top flight Chems group, and obviously it stands to reason that GS (Natural Resources Group) and MS(?) would be up there. Any Chems bankers on the board to verify this?
