Partners for Growth
Published: Jan 24 2011

Plant Impact has been pursuing its strategy of forming strategic partnerships to accelerate the commercialisation of its proven technologies. This includes a significant agreement with Arysta LifeScience (February 2010) for the evaluation, development and distribution of crop nutrient products.

Evaluation, development and distribution agreements have also been made with Agrimatco (September 2010) and Cebeco (November 2010). These three well-chosen strategic partners can be expected to hasten Plant Impact‟s commercialisation timeline.

A DCF analysis assuming a 20% discount rate and a conservative long term growth rate of 1% yields a target price of 58p, a modest reduction from our former target of 60p.
