DuPont to merge with Dow? Divisions to split?

DuPont owner of Danisco’s probiotics, enzymes, sweeteners, colours and flavours business, along with the Solae soy brand - is set to merge with Dow Chemicals to become the world’s second biggest chemicals firm after €80bn BASF.

If the deal goes through the new €75bn global entity could be split in three: agricultural chemicals, specialty products, and materials – according to press reports.

Shares in both firms have risen as a result of the proposal. Both companies have refused to comment on the speculation.

DuPont paid $6.3 bn (€5.75bn) for Danisco in 2011.

The US-based giant took full control of Solae from its partner Bunge in 2012.
