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.

The trend toward market consolidation has triggered fears among farmers that the pipeline for new herbicides and pesticides might slow. Regulators have required some divestments as a condition for approving the Syngenta deal. 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...

EU capitals seek stronger right of veto on Chinese takeovers

Germany, France and Italy have called on Brussels to grant them a right of veto over Chinese high-tech takeovers, in a sign of the growing protectionist backlash against Chinese investment in Europe’s most sensitive industries.

 

Germany’s economics ministry said the three governments had written to Cecilia Malmström, EU trade commissioner, with the aim of opening up a debate on the issue. It said they wanted to create the legal basis for national governments to be able to “intervene in direct investments which are state-controlled”.

China M&A: Cross-border deals worth $75bn were cancelled in 2016, Baker McKenzie and Rhodium say
The value of cancelled Chinese overseas acquisition deals stood at $75bn in 2016, which was over seven times the $10bn worth of scrapped deals seen in 2015, according to an analysis by law firm Baker McKenzie and researcher Rhodium.

 

Regulatory and foreign exchange restrictions led to the failure of 30 Chinese acquisitions with European and US companies. While 10 US deals worth $58.5bn were scrapped, Europe saw 20 deals worth $16.3bn being cancelled.
