Trending: Glencore-Backed Viterra, Bunge to Merge in $8.2Bln Deal

1255 GMT - Glencore is among the most mentioned companies across news items over the past 12 hours, according to Factiva data, after the Anglo-Swiss commodity miner agreed with U.S. grain trader and oilseed processor Bunge a merger between the latter and Glencore-backed Viterra. The cash-and-stock deal will see Glencore receive around $3.1 billion in Bunge stock and $1.0 billion in cash for its around 50% stake in agriculture trader Viterra, resulting in Glencore holding 15% of the new company. "The combined group would be a premier pure-play agribusiness solutions company, well placed to meet increased global demand," Glencore Chief Executive Gary Nagle said. The deal puts Glencore firmly on a path to portfolio optimization, Citi Research analysts write in a research note. The merger "should be well received by the market as the market was assigning little/no valuation of it in Glencore," they add. The merger is expected to close in mid-2024.
