A combination of Monsanto Co. and Syngenta AG would set the stage for even more mergers and acquisitions, Bloomberg reported. Monsanto has approached Syngenta about a takeover that would create a giant in the market for seeds and crop chemicals with more than $30 billion in revenue. Getting a deal approved by regulators won’t be easy – and may not happen at all. To address antitrust issues and help its case, Monsanto has planned for a deal to include a sale of parts of the combined business, a person familiar with the matter has said. The biggest concerns may be tied to what would be an unprecedented market share in soybeans and corn seeds for the combined company.
