Sinochem ups stake in Jiangsu Yangnong

State-owned Chinese chemical giant, Sinochem International, has purchased a 40.53% stake in the Chinese agrochemical company, Jiangsu Yangnong Chemical. The move makes Sinochem the second-largest shareholder in the company, less than 0.1 percentage point behind Jiangsu Jinmao Chemical and Pharmaceutical Group, which holds the majority stake of 40.59%. Before the purchase, which was completed at the end of last month, Sinochem International had held a 5% stake in the company. Jiangsu Yangong is one of China's largest agrochemical manufacturers, ranked second in terms of its annual agrochemical sales by the China Crop Protection Industry Association last year ( Agrow No 627, p 7). New Chinese pesticide industry targets aim to encourage mergers and acquisitions so that the number of pesticide companies is reduced by 30% by 2015 ( Agrow No 627, pp 22-23).
