EU Regulators Delay ChemChina-Syngenta Merger Decision Until April 12


European Union antitrust regulators have extended the deadline for a decision on ChemChina’s proposed buy of Swiss pesticides and seeds group Syngenta by 10 working days to April 12.

Syngenta said in a statement the two companies had asked for the extension to allow “sufficient time for the discussion of remedy proposals”.

The European Commission opened an in-depth investigation into state-owned ChemChina’s $43 billion bid in October, saying the companies had not allayed concerns over the deal.

The Commission’s website showed the deadline had been extended by 10 days on Tuesday.

“ChemChina and Syngenta remain fully committed to the transaction and are confident of its closure,” the Swiss company said.
