Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway is to buy Phillips Specialty Products, a unit of Phillips 66 that makes chemicals to improve the flow potential of pipelines. The deal is valued at $1.4 billion. Berkshire will use about 19 million shares of Phillips 66 stock that it currently owns to pay for the acquisition. It will augment Berkshire's existing Lubrizol specialty chemicals business.
