Administracao, Empreendimentos e Participacoes (Kayatani) of Sao Paolo, Brazil, to acquire an 11.89% share of Iharabras S.A. Industrias Quimicas (IBIQ), an agrochemicals company.

Mitsui Chemicals positions its agrochemical business as one its "Five Priority Businesses", which are resilient to fluctuating economic conditions, in its 2011 Mid-term Business Plan (FY2011-FY2013) and has proactively pursued expansion.

In line with the fundamental strategy of the Mid-term Business Plan, MCAG, which is responsible for the Mitsui Chemicals Group's agrochemical business, reached an agreement to purchase IBIQ shares to establish closer cooperation with Brazil's strongest pesticide manufacturer/distributor to strengthen its presence and proactively expand business in the strategically important Brazilian market.
