07:30 EDTMONMonsanto, Scotts Miracle-Gro expand long-standing agreement
Monsanto Company (MON) and The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company (SMG) announced the two companies have extended their nearly two-decade long partnership in the lawn and garden consumer market. Since 1999, Scotts Miracle-Gro, through one of its subsidiaries, has served as Monsanto's exclusive agent for the marketing and distribution of Roundup® non-selective herbicides in the consumer lawn and garden market within the United States and select international markets. Today’s agreement will unlock additional value in the Roundup brand in the lawn and garden segment by providing Scotts with an extended license to use the Roundup brand in new lawn and garden product categories and broaden their marketing rights into new geographies. As part of the extension, Monsanto also renewed and expanded the terms of its marketing agreement with Scotts and provided preferred access to Monsanto’s R&D pipeline for lawn and garden. Under the agreement, Scotts will pay Monsanto a one-time upfront payment of $300M in exchange for a Roundup® brand license, extended agency agreement and technology agreement.

07:06 EDTMONScotts Miracle-Gro announces agreement with Monsanto to extend Roundup brand
Scotts Miracle-Gro (SMG) announced an agreement with Monsanto (MON) that offers opportunities to extend the Roundup brand into new lawn and garden categories and geographies. The two companies also have reached a technology sharing agreement and have made amendments to the existing Roundup Agency Agreement that provide greater long-term security for ScottsMiracle-Gro. Key highlights to the agreements provide ScottsMiracle-Gro with enhanced security, as termination of the agreement no longer includes specific performance criteria. In the event Monsanto terminates the agreement, in certain circumstances, the company would receive a termination fee of no less than $200M and would retain its agency rights for at least 5 years. ScottsMiracle-Gro has agreed to pay Monsanto $300M in connection with these and other amendments to the current Agency Agreement and the brand extension and joint technology agreements. Financing will be accommodated under the company's existing credit facility. Because the ability to introduce new products and enter new geographies could take several years, the amended agreement modifies the existing commission structure. The result of the new structure is expected to offset financing costs and the expenses required for the development of new Roundup products and services.
