NEW YORK, May 14 (Reuters) – A takeover of U.S. fertilizer
producer Mosaic Co is unlikely in the near term and
would be affordable to only a handful of players, executives
said in an interview on Tuesday.
The world’s largest producer of finished phosphate products
and North America’s second-biggest potash producer has at times
been the target of takeover chatter since it was spun off by
Cargill Inc in 2004.
