GUANGZHOU (ICIS)--China’s Sinofert Holdings said on Monday that its wholly owned subsidiary Sinochem Fertilizer has, on 8 January, signed an agreement to acquire a 100% equity interest in Yunnan-based Xundian Lomon Phosphorus Chemical for yuan (CNY) 1.38bn ($218m).

Sinochem Fertilizer is purchasing 10% of Lomon Corp’s interest and 90% of Tibet Longsheng’s interest, according to a Sinofert statement to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.

Xundian Lomon is mainly engaged in the exploration, mining and production of feed-grade phosphate products in China.

Sinofert said Xundian Lomon’s abundant reserves of phosphate resources will help it expand from a fertilizers trader and producer to a phosphate-resource owner. The acquisition would also help strengthen Sinofert’s presence in southwestern China.

Sinofert is a major producer and distributor of fertilizers and related products in China.
