New Yara acquisition in Latin America

Yara International ASA has entered into an agreement to acquire OFD Holding Inc. (OFD) from Omimex Resources Inc., for an enterprise value of USD 425 million. The acquired business comprises production facilities in Colombia and distribution companies across Latin America.

The main companies included in the transaction are Abocol (Colombia), Misti (Peru), Omagro (Mexico), Fertitec (Panama and Costa Rica), Cafesa (Costa Rica) and Norsa (Bolivia). The transaction further strengthens Yara’s downstream footprint and growth platform in Latin America, and is highly complementary to its recent acquisition of Bunge’s fertilizer business in Brazil.
