ChemChina Says Not Considering Bids For Monsanto's Herbicide Business

China National Chemical Corporation (ChemChina) is not considering bidding for Monsanto Company's (NYSE:MON) herbicide business or for Swiss crop chemicals maker Syngenta AG (SWX:SYNN), a top ChemChina executive told Reuters on May 22, 2015. "There have been some market speculations on this about ChemChina, but it's not us. We are not in contacts with (these) companies," said Robert Lu, ChemChina's Vice President in charge of overseas acquisitions. Banking sources have previously told Reuters that ChemChina could be among the potential buyers for some of the assets that may be sold to overcome antitrust issues arising from Monsanto's planned acquisition of Syngenta.
