ChemChina clinches landmark $43 billion takeover of Syngenta
ChemChina has won more than enough support from Syngenta shareholders to clinch its $43 billion takeover of the Swiss pesticides and seeds group, the two companies said on Friday.

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.


MoneyGram will share confidential information with peer Euronet so that it can firm up its offer. Euronet had offered $15.20 per share in cash to buy MoneyGram last week, topping the $13.25 per share offer from Ant Financial. Wall Street already seems certain that there's more to come.

Tsinghua Unigroup’s Taiwan deals unravel as Powertech calls off share pact

Taiwan's Powertech Technology Inc said Friday it was terminating a share agreement with China's Tsinghua Unigroup Ltd, unraveling more than $2 billion in deal-making that the state-run Chinese giant had hoped to seal on the island.
