EU regulators delay ChemChina/Syngenta merger decision to April

European Union antitrust regulators have extended the deadline for a decision on ChemChina's proposed buy of Swiss pesticides and seeds group Syngenta by 10 working days to April 12.

"ChemChina and Syngenta remain fully committed to the transaction and are confident of its closure," the Swiss company said.
