Expert comments on $43bn (£30bn) proposed acquisition of Syngenta by ChemChina

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 4 febbraio 2016

Kamel Mellahi, a Professor of Strategic Management at Warwick Business Schoolwho has studied key Chinese businesses for a number of years, has made the following statement comment on the $43bn (£30bn) proposed acquisition of Syngenta by ChemChina: “This is an acquisition driven primarily by growth strategy, and not potential synergies that usually result in cost cutting and reduction of workforce. So the deal is good news for both Syngenta’s shareholders as well as its employees.”Syngenta has been going through challenging times recently, mainly because of its exposure to uncertainties in emerging markets and the recent collapse of commodity prices. For ChemChina, acquiring one of the world’s leading manufacturer of agricultural and chemicals and seeds with world class resources and capabilities will enable it to access valuable knowledge that could help its drive for innovation.”Most of the problems with such acquisitions tend to rise later on when the two firms try to integrate their processes. But typical of international acquisitions by Chinese firms, ChemChina is keeping Syngenta’s existing management which will continue to run the company, while the board of directors will be chaired by ChemChina’s head.”
