The other deals in the sector are a $130 billion proposed merger of Dow Chemical and DuPont, and Bayer's plan to merge with Monsanto.


Meanwhile China has conditionally approved the pr...

MoneyGram board says Euronet offer could result in superior proposal
U.S. electronic payments company MoneyGram International Inc said on Monday that peer Euronet Worldwide Inc's offer could result in a superior proposal compared to the one from China's Ant Financial Services Group.

Dalian Wanda is King Kong in Hollywood Mr Wang has so far adopted the same Kong-like bluntness in entertainment as he has in Chinese property, building a swath of Wanda Plaza shopping and leisure centres across the country.
