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.
