Our 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.
In the US, the Federal Trade Commission cleared the transaction with minor divestitures of pesticide products. CRA’s US work was led by Peter Boberg and Andrew Dick and included Gregory Kozemchak.
