KWS SAAT SE & Co. KGaA (ISIN DE0007074007) Einbeck (Germany), 31 October 2023 – The Management Board of KWS SE, the general partner of KWS SAAT SE & Co. KGaA, KWS SE, (‘Management Board’) decided today, with the approval of the Supervisory Board, to divest its 49% stake in the joint venture, KENFENG – KWS SEED CO., LTD, as well as the Chinese corn portfolio (including licenses) to the joint venture partner, Beidahuang Kenfeng Seed Co., Ltd.

The execution of the transaction is subject to the execution of purchase agreements, which are expected to be signed on November 18, 2023, subject to the approval of the relevant Chinese authorities and corporate bodies of the Beidahuang Group Co., Ltd. Group.
