Asset sales plan secures EU backing for $130 billion Dow, DuPont

Asset sales plan secures EU backing for $130 billion Dow, DuPont merger

(Reuters) – Dow Chemical and DuPont won the blessing of the European Union for their $130 billion merger on Monday by agreeing to sell substantial assets including key research and development activities.

The European Commission had been concerned that the merger of two of the biggest and oldest U.S. chemical producers would leave few incentives to produce new herbicides and pesticides in the future. The deal is one of a trio of mega mergers that will reshape the industry and consolidate six companies into three.

Asset sales would ensure competition in the sector and benefit European farmers and consumers, the Commission said.

“We need effective competition in this sector so companies are pushed to develop products that are ever safer for people and better for the environment,” European Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager said in a statement.

“Our decision today ensures that the merger between Dow and DuPont does not reduce price competition for existing pesticides or innovation for safer and better products in the future.”

The two other big deals in the industry are ChemChina’s [CNNCC.UL] $43 billion bid for Syngenta and Bayer’s acquisition of Monsanto.

Dow and DuPont said they were still on target for $3 billion in cost synergies and $1 billion in growth benefits.

The deal is still to be approved by regulators in the United States, Brazil, China, Australia and Canada, but the companies said they were confident of clearance in all remaining jurisdictions.

“This regulatory milestone is a significant step toward closing the merger transaction, with the intention to subsequently spin into three independent publicly traded companies,” Dow spokeswoman Rachelle Schikorra said in an email.

The EU approval may be a sign that U.S. regulators would follow suit because the agencies have traditionally coordinated on reviews and remedies for large multinational mergers, said Diana Moss, president of the American Antitrust Institute non-profit group.

However, any required asset sales would likely reflect antitrust concerns in the local marketplace.

“In the U.S. there are very high shares in corn and soybean seeds. We would expect those problems to be significant enough for enforcers in the U.S. to remedy them,” Moss said.

The 1,000-page decision underlined the significance of the merger. In return for the EU green light, DuPont will divest large parts of its global pesticides business, including its global research and development organization.

The unit makes herbicides for cereals, oilseed rape, sunflower, rice and pasture and insecticides for insect control for fruits and vegetables.

Dow, in turn, will sell two acid co-polymer manufacturing facilities in Spain and the United States, as well as a contract with a third party through which it buys ionomers. The company has already found a buyer in South Korea’s SK Innovation.

“The main surprises here are the inclusion of the pesticides and the exclusion of any kind of seed assets,” Bernstein analysts wrote in a note. The analysts also said they had expected EU to be concerned about the concentration of seed sales, and that they would require Dow to divest its corn seeds business.

“We see the required divestments here as smaller than we originally expected, due to the exclusion of seed assets”.

  • Lobbyist waivers show ethics are an inconvenience for Trump

    With Nevada becoming the 19th state to support a constitutional amendment to overturn the U.S. Supreme Court’s Citizens United ruling, the effort to rid politics of the corrupting influence of money has reached a milestone. The movement has support from half of the 38 states needed to enact such an amendment after it is approved by two-thirds of both chambers of Congress.

    As a candidate, Donald Trump promised to make NAFTA “much better” for working people. But Trump’s NAFTA renegotiation plan described just what the corporate lobby is demanding: using NAFTA talks to revive parts of the Trans-Pacific Partnership like expanded investor incentives to offshore jobs that could make NAFTA even worse for working people.

    M.A. vs. M.Ed.

    It is critical that applicants to the ECPS Program Areas indicate whether they wish to be considered for a M.A. (Master of Arts) or a M.Ed. (Master of Education) degree.

    To help you decide on a graduate degree path, check out the brief description of the differences:

    M.A. Degree

    Mainly intended for students interested in conducting a research study or who wish, upon graduation, to assume a research position or to proceed to doctoral level studies. Accordingly, the M.A. program is designed specifically as a research degree, with students required to carry out and complete an independent research project (Master s Thesis). Completion of a master s thesis is viewed as a prerequisite for the pursuit of doctoral studies in most institutions.

    Transfers between closely related master s programs (M.A.Sc. to M.Sc. M.A. to M.Ed.) are permitted with an academic justification from the Graduate Program advisor or department head.

    Transfers between master s programs involving a change of discipline should be treated as new admissions.

    M.Ed. Degree

    Specifically designed as a practitioner s degree, for students who wish to acquire the knowledge, skills and experience necessary to work in a professional field. As a professional degree, the M.Ed. is intended for students who wish, upon graduation, to assume positions of leadership in a practical setting or positions requiring more advanced study than that available at the bachelor s level (e.g. as an instructional technologist or as a district resource teacher). The M.Ed. is not a research degree in the sense that the student is not required to carry out and defend an independent research project. However, the M.Ed. program is nevertheless research-based in that consideration of educationally relevant research constitutes a major focus of study and students are normally required to take a number of research-relevant courses (e.g. statistics courses). Some M.Ed. programs require students to complete a graduating seminar and portfolio (EPSE 590) as part of program requirements.
