INVISTA's Shareholder - Koch Industries, Inc.
INVISTA is an independently managed, wholly owned subsidiary of Koch Industries, Inc. In 2004, subsidiaries of Koch Industries acquired INVISTA from E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company. INVISTA, formerly DuPont Textiles and Interiors, was combined with KoSa, a producer of commodity and specialty polyester fibers, polymers and intermediates. KoSa had been a Koch affiliate since 1998.
One of the largest privately held companies in the world, Koch Industries is primarily a family owned company, built on values such as integrity, humility and a desire to add real, long-term value to society. Koch companies have a presence in about 60 countries and employ more than 100,000 people worldwide, with about 60,000 of those in the United States.
As a privately held company, Koch Industries does not release financial statements or other financial data. However, since 1960, the value of the Standard & Poor's 500 grew 160-fold, assuming the reinvestment of dividends. During that same period, the value of Koch Industries grew nearly 4,600-fold, using the same assumptions.
Contributing to the company’s continued financial strength is the shareholders’ long-time policy of reinvesting 90 percent of earnings. Since 2003, Koch companies have invested about $70 billion in acquisitions and other capital investments.
Its unique Market Based Management® business philosophy has fueled Koch Industries' growth and success over the years.
