Project Type: Sell-Side Representation
Client: Genica Research Corporation
Region: United States / France
Description: Groupe Limagrain, through its Business Units Vilmorin and HM.CLAUSE, has acquired Genica Research Corporation, parent company of Magnum Seeds and Genista.
Description: Verdant Partners’ help in selling Genica Research Corporation to Groupe Limagrain’s vegetable seed company was invaluable. Genica consisted of Magnum Seeds and Genista Research. The Company was very successful because of our strong genetics and market share in important vegetable seed markets. My partners, employees and I all were dedicated and involved in increasing the value of Genica. We turned to Verdant Partners to help us find buyers and market this value. Their contacts in the vegetable seed industry along with their knowledge and experience in negotiating and selling companies made the difference in getting the best deal for the buyers and sellers. I don’t think I will ever be in the position again to sell a seed company, but I highly recommend Verdant Partners to anyone who might be. - Frank Avila, Former Partner & General Manager of Magnum Seeds
