Syngenta to sell entire Enkhuizen operations
UPDATE: In a letter, Syngenta has made the following statement towards growers and customers of the vegetable seed division.
We are writing to advise you that on 3 September 2015 Syngenta announced that it intends to divest our global vegetable seeds business.
Our vegetable seed business is strong in terms of overall market position, geographical coverage, historical sales growth and profitability. It is populated by highly professional, experienced and passionate team members. Our portfolio is broad and we enjoy market leading positions in a number of key segments.
That said, we recognize that there is limited synergy between our vegetable seeds and crop protection business and that to fuel the continued growth in the vegetable seed business will need the provision more dedicated support for and focus on specialized vegetable growers and young plant raisers
We anticipate that a potential acquirer will either be a company currently in the vegetable seeds market itself or an investor seeking to build a dedicated and focused vegetable seed business
What Happens Next?
Our first and foremost priority is to ensure you that whilst we are making this transition in ownership of our vegetable seeds business it will be ‘business as usual’. We will ensure that our products will remain available to meet market demand and that you will continue to have close interactions with the current Syngenta Vegetables team
We will plan the separation of our vegetable seeds business from the rest of Syngenta and position it as a ‘stand-alone’ business unit in advance of the divestment. In parallel with this separation we will prepare the necessary information to present to prospective acquirers and engage with them in their assessment of our business.
Once an offer has been accepted, we will need to secure the necessary approvals and begin the process of transitioning the ownership of the vegetable seeds business."
