Syngenta Reportedly Planning To Sell Vegetable Seeds Business

Syngenta AG (SWX:SYNN) may sell some division. Sources close to the matter said that the company is about to launch the sale of its vegetable seeds business as it seeks to raise money for a share buyback. In September 2015, it said this month it plans to buy back more than $2 billion worth of stock to boost investor returns. Sources added that the company has asked JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE:JPM) to organize the sale of the vegetable seeds business and it could fetch around $2 billion. The news report added that information packages on the unit, which includes a strong tomato-seeds business, are expected to be sent to prospective buyers as early as this month and tentative bids are likely to be due before Christmas. The report added that Syngenta and JP Morgan declined to comment. One source indicated that some smaller firms may tie up for a potential bid, due to the size of the asset. The source said, “I can imagine the unit fetching a multiple of more than 15 (times EBITDA) in a sale.”

Syngenta AG Receives US EPA Approval for New High Performance Fungicide

Syngenta announced that it has received US EPA approval for ORONDIS a new high-performance fungicide. First sales are expected in the 2016 season. ORONDIS offers vegetable and specialty crop growers a step change in controlling diseases such as downy mildew and late blight. Its new mode of action complements and expands Syngenta's fungicide portfolio and helps address increasing resistance to some products. In extensive trials, ORONDIS has shown unparalleled efficacy at significantly lower rates compared with other fungicides.
