Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) announced three actions in the company’s ongoing portfolio management. ADM has signed an agreement to sell its fertilizer business in Brazil and Paraguay to The Mosaic Company (MOS) for $350M. The transaction consists primarily of five ADM-owned blending facilities in Brazil and Paraguay. The purchase price includes $150M in working capital. As part of the transaction, ADM will purchase fertilizer from Mosaic after the closing and will continue to supply certain fertilizer customers in Brazil and Paraguay. ADM also announced it will pursue the sale of its chocolate business, while retaining the majority of its cocoa press operations. The company has engaged advisers to facilitate the sale process. Finally, ADM announced it will acquire the remaining 20% minority stake of Alfred C. Toepfer International for EUR83M, representing about 1.1x net book value. The proposed transaction, which is occurring through the exercise of a put agreement by Union InVivo, will be subject to customary regulatory approvals. Since 2002, ADM has owned 80% of Toepfer.

12:31 EDTMOSMosaic to acquire Archer Daniels' Brazil, Paraguay fertilizer units
Mosaic (MOS) signed definitive agreements with Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) to acquire its fertilizer distribution business in Brazil and Paraguay for $350M. The purchase price assumes the delivery of $150M in working capital at closing. This acquisition is expected to accelerate Mosaic's previously announced growth plans in Brazil as well as replace planned internal investments in that country. Under the terms of the agreement, Mosaic would acquire four blending and warehousing facilities in Brazil, one in Paraguay and additional warehousing and logistics service capabilities. The acquisition of ADM's fertilizer distribution business would increase Mosaic's annual distribution in the region from approximately 4M metric tonnes to about 6M metric tonnes of crop nutrients. The parties have also negotiated the terms of five-year fertilizer supply agreements providing for Mosaic to supply ADM's fertilizer needs in Brazil and Paraguay. Mosaic will fund the acquisition with cash from operations. The transaction is not expected to impact Mosaic's shareholder distribution plans. The proposed sale will be contingent on customary regulatory approvals.

10:53 EDTAGU, MOS, POTAgrium slips after warning on late planting season impact on earnings
Shares of agricultural nutrients producer Agrium (AGU) are slipping after the company warned that it expects first quarter earnings per share just above breakeven. WHAT'S NEW. Agrium announced that the late spring season this year is expected to result in first quarter earnings per share just above breakeven, while analysts' consensus estimate prior to the announcement stood at 53c per share. The company said the slow start to the spring season is expected to impact the timing of its wholesale, and to a lesser extent its retail, earnings. First quarter wholesale results were also impacted by reduced rail availability and the usual lag in realized wholesale nutrient prices, Agrium added. Additionally, the Carseland nitrogen facility experienced a failure in March, which has resulted in an unplanned shutdown to make repairs that are expected to be complete in the second half of May. The shutdown is anticipated to lower product availability of urea by approximately 100,000 tonnes and ammonia by approximately 20,000 tonnes in the second quarter, Agrium noted. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On February 20, Agrium said that it expected FY14 North American spring crop area to be near FY13. It said that it projected crop nutrient shipments to be strong in the first half of FY14, in part due to a shorter fall application season in FY13 due to weather. Agrium projected North American nitrogen demand to decline about 2%-4% in FY13/FY14 due primarily to reduced corn acreage, while global nitrogen demand is projected to increase by 1.5%-2% in FY14 from FY13 levels. OTHERS TO WATCH: Agrium's peers in the fertilizer industry include Mosaic (MOS) and Potash (POT). PRICE ACTION: During morning trading, shares of Agrium fell 1.76% to $95.80, Potash dropped 1.6%, and Mosaic slipped 0.7%.
