Ameropa Holding AG, a privately held Swiss company, signed on Nov. 25 “several agreements” to buy a majority stake in Azomures SA (AZO), Romania’s largest publicly traded fertilizer maker, according to a filling to the Bucharest Stock Exchange.

The transaction is pending the approval of Romania’s competition regulator, Azomures said in the statement, without giving more details about the deal.
