BASEL, Switzerland–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Syngenta announced today that Adama Agricultural Solutions Ltd (“Adama”) and Syngenta AG (“Syngenta”) have entered into binding agreement with Nufarm Limited (“Nufarm”) to sell a portfolio of crop protection products for an agreed transaction value of USD 490 million. The combined portfolio of products being divested includes off-patent crop protection formulations in the herbicides, fungicides, insecticides and other categories in the EEA. No physical assets (apart from inventory) or personnel will be transferred as part of the transaction. Syngenta will also sell inventory to Nufarm at closing of the transaction, which is expected to occur in the first quarter of calendar year 2018.
