Syngenta Prepares For A Deal

Syngenta AG (SWX:SYNN) which held preliminary talks earlier this year about a combination with Monsanto Company (NYSE:MON) that never came to fruition, is willing to have such conversations and open to a deal, whether as an acquirer or as a target, according to shareholder Wintergreen Advisers LLC. One option for Syngenta is a takeover of agricultural business of The Dow Chemical Company (NYSE:DOW) agricultural business, said Alembic Global Advisors and SunTrust Banks Inc. Dow Chief Executive Officer Andrew Liveris has suggested the company is open to divesting that unit. E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company (NYSE:DD) and Syngenta could also merge and then spin off the DuPont’s non-agricultural businesses, said Zuercher Kantonalbank.
