ZURICH (Reuters) - Bridge financing is "committed and irrevocable" for ChemChina's $43 billion takeover of Syngenta
"We have no comment to make on this article and ChemChina is proceeding with their refinancing strategy," the spokeswoman said. "Bridge financing for the transaction is committed and irrevocable."
State-owned ChemChina is borrowing heavily to buy seeds-and-pesticides producer Syngenta as the country seeks new agricultural technology to bolster its growing population's food supply. Caixin reported that a $15 billion piece of the deal's funding remains missing, citing several people it said were close to the deal.
