BASF Reportedly Secures Financing To Acquire Syngenta

BASF SE (DB:BAS) intends to make an offer for Syngenta AG (SWX:SYNN). BASF has lined up a loan package from large multinational banks for a potential takeover offer for Syngenta, several people familiar with the matter said. "BASF has committed financing in place to buy Syngenta," one of the people said, asking not to be identified because the negotiations are confidential. BASF will only decide to submit a bid for Syngenta if Monsanto makes an offer, the sources said, adding that BASF was comfortable with there being no merger at all and the status quo in the industry prevailing. "BASF will not be a first mover but remain a reactive player," one of the people said. Reuters added that BASF and Syngenta declined to comment.
