“Canada fertilizer merger faces easier approval at home than in U.S.” by John Tilak and Diane Bartz, Reuters

Reuters quotes Toronto lawyer Huy Do in an article on the Chinese regulatory reaction to a potential merger between Potash Corp and Agrium Inc that would create a fertilizer and farm-retailing giant in Canada.

The deal may also catch the attention of regulators in China, a major potash buyer. Agrium, Potash and Mosaic sell potash offshore through jointly owned Canpotex.

Huy Do of Canadian law firm Fasken Martineau said Chinese regulators may see the deal as an opportunity to dismantle Canpotex.
