FTC Antitrust Review of ChemChina/Syngenta Merger
Mergers & Acquisitions
CRA economists advised ChemChina on its acquisition of Syngenta, a Swiss pesticides and seeds group. The European Commission (EC) approved the acquisition subject to the divestiture of parts of ChemChina's European pesticide and plant growth regulator business. CRA’s European team was led by Cristina Caffarra and Dan Donath, and included Michael Muehlbradt, Kirsten Abeln, and Raphael Kuhlmann. In the US, the FTC cleared the transaction with minor divestitures of pesticide products. CRA’s US work was led by Peter Boberg and Andrew Dick and included Grace Yu, Gregory Kozemchak, and Dariel Disla.
