American Vanguard<sup>®</sup> announces U.S. acquisition of Envoke<sup>®</sup> brand herbicide from Syngenta

American Vanguard® Corporation (NYSE:AVD) announced that its principal operating subsidiary, AMVAC® Chemical Corporation (AMVAC), has entered into agreements with Syngenta Crop Protection, LLC, to acquire rights to Envoke® herbicide. The acquisition includes end-use product registrations and trademarks for Envoke herbicide in the United States. Syngenta and AMVAC will work together over the next several months until the US Environmental Protection Agency registration has officially transferred to facilitate an orderly transition to maintain quality customer service in all domestic geographies. The financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Envoke is an HRAC/WSSA Group 2 post-emergent herbicide for use in cotton, sugarcane, and transplanted tomatoes for control of certain broadleaf weeds, sedge, and grass weeds delivering effective control of many troublesome weed species, including many of those missed by glyphosate. Envoke is an ideal tank-mix partner for a broad spectrum of control and provides cost-saving growth regulator effect, allowing plants to focus energy on fruit development.

Scott Hendrix, AMVAC Senior Vice President, US and Canada Crop Sales and Application Technology, stated, “The addition of Envoke to the AMVAC portfolio allows AMVAC to strengthen our portfolio in core crops and provide growers with unique herbicide solutions for management of difficult to control weeds. This acquisition demonstrates our commitment to these key markets and complements our existing technologies to better serve our customers.”
