Agrium again pleads case with CF Industries

Fertilizer giant Agrium Inc.’s (TSX:AGU) quest to take over CF Industries Holdings Inc. (NYSE:CF) intensified Thursday, as the chief executive of the Calgary-based firm invited his CF counterpart to meet any time, anywhere to discuss the US$3.8-billion offer. In a letter addressed to CF CEO Stephen Wilson, Agrium’s chief executive said his company is “100 per cent committed” to acquiring the Deerfield, Ill.-based fertilizer maker, and would be willing to raise its cash-and-stock offer if CF demonstrates it is worth more. CF has repeatedly rebuffed Agrium’s overtures, saying the takeover is an attempt to thwart CF’s own hostile pursuit of U.S. rival Terra Industries Inc. (NYSE:TRA). “Agrium’s letter is blatantly inaccurate and does nothing to change the fact that Agrium’s offer is grossly inadequate. Agrium’s rhetoric is not a substitute for a credible offer,” CF stated in response to Thursday’s missive.
