Brazil Court May Hold Up Bunge Soy Acquisitions


A Brazilian appeals court on Wednesday could clear up a legal hurdle delaying Bunge's plans to take over two soy processing plants following a deal in May with crusher Imcopa.

According to a report at Successful Farming, Wednesday's hearing will focus on two Panama-registered firms that claim, as indirect creditors of Imcopa, which is in bankruptcy protection, to have rights to some of the proceeds from the sale, according to court filings seen by Reuters.

The three-judge panel is expected to rule on whether the Panamanian firms Minefer Development SA and Triana Business SA are legitimate participants in the process.

The panel will also decide whether to uphold a May 2020 decision determining that part of the proceeds from the sale of the soy plants should be deposited in an escrow account pending a final ruling on the Panamanians' claims, according to the filings.
