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...

Dealmakers Battle for Chance to Run World's Biggest Chemical Company
It’s a battle of two great deal makers and the prize is potentially the chance to run the world’s largest chemical company.

 

On one side is Sinochem Group boss "Frank" Ning Gaoning, who is said to be in talks for a second major deal with global commodities trader Noble Group Ltd. On the other is Ren Jianxin, chairman of China National Chemical Corp., or ChemChina, whose $43 billion offer to buy Swiss pesticides-and-seeds maker Syngenta AG is currently wending its way through official reviews.

Carlsberg Said to Consider Bid for $1.2 Billion Tsingtao Stake
Carlsberg A/S, the Danish beermaker, is weighing the purchase of a 20 percent stake in China’s Tsingtao Brewery. Asahi, the largest Japanese brewer, is exploring a potential sale of its minority Tsingtao holding.

Tying up with Carlsberg could help Tsingtao as it grapples with competition from China Resources Beer Holdings Co.’s best-selling Snow lager and Anheuser-Busch InBev NV’s Budweiser label.

Bidders have favored a court-led process to cap their exposure to Takata's existing liabilities. Those liabilities are estimated by some analysts to be as high as $10 billion for recall costs alone.
