Mergers & Acquisitions

One of the largest independent groups of agricultural retailers in the country are joining forces with others around the globe to create a major player in the world ag market. AgLink Canada has joined with AgLink Australia, Integrated Agribusiness Professionals in the United States and AgriRede in Brazil, creating AgLink International. And it's big news in the mergers and acquisitions world. 

As far as retail agriculture goes, the new entity is now the second largest of its kind in the world. The new company -- which united 112 companies -- has sales of US$3.8 billion from 664 retail outlets. Members of AgLink Canada can now buy in bulk through the new company, giving them a more relevant platform.

AgLink Canada was relatively new, only forming a little more than two years ago. The main goal of AgLink International is to utilize technology for innovation and learning and to expand global reach with agricultural products. AgLink International gives independent members the opportunity to be part of a large, influential organization.

The business world in Canada is always rife with mergers and acquisitions deals at any given moment. They make things interesting, but they can also be very complex and are often confusing. The laws that govern them are manifold and are often accompanied by legal processes that many don't understand. An experienced business lawyer in Canada may be able to explain hard-to-grasp concepts regarding these deals to those clients looking to further explore the possibilities of mergers and acquisitions for their own businesses.
