BASF in exclusive talks with Bayer to acquire vegetable seeds business

09.03.2018 17:43 "Agro Perspectiva" (Kyiv) BASF is in exclusive talks to acquire Bayers entire vegetable seeds business, operating under the global trademark Nunhems. Bayer intends to divest this business in the context of its planned acquisition of Monsanto. Definitive agreements have not been concluded. With this transaction, BASF targets to enhance its future seed platform and the market position of its Agricultural Solutions business.

On October 13, 2017, BASF signed an agreement to acquire significant parts of Bayers seed and non-selective herbicide businesses. The all-cash purchase price is 5.9 billion, subject to certain adjustments at closing. The assets to be acquired include Bayers global glufosinate-ammonium non-selective herbicide business as well as its seed businesses for key row crops in select markets: canola hybrids in North America under the InVigor brand using the LibertyLink trait technology, oilseed rape mainly in European markets, cotton in the Americas and Europe as well as soybean in the Americas. The transaction also includes Bayers trait research and breeding capabilities for these crops and the LibertyLink trait and trademark. This acquisition complements BASFs crop protection business and marks its entry into the seed business with proprietary assets in key agricultural markets.
