DOW JONES NEWSWIRES

E.I. DuPont de Nemours & Co. paid Bunge Ltd. (BG) about $440 million to acquire full ownership of Solae LLC, their soy-based ingredients venture, as DuPont looks to expand its position in the food ingredients market.

DuPont previously owned 72% of the venture while Bunge owned the remaining 28%.

The companies formed the venture in early 2003 to produce and distribute specialty food ingredients. At that time, DuPont estimated initial global revenue from Solae to exceed $800 million annually. In exchange for its specialty-food-ingredients businesses in 2003, Bunge was to receive the 28% interest in the venture plus an estimated $260 million, which was funded by joint-venture debt.

DuPont said its long-term segment financial targets are to post a 7% to 9% compound annual growth rate for sales and to expand pretax earnings margins 12% to 14%. With full ownership of Solae, DuPont expects to reach the upper end of its margin targets with planned synergies.

The chemicals giant last month reported its first-quarter profit rose 4% as higher pricing and a jump in sales of agricultural products contributed to a 12% sales increase.

Meanwhile, Bunge reported last week its first-quarter earnings fell by a greater-than-expected 60% as weak prices for fertilizer and its sugar-based ethanol hurt margins, though revenue grew 10%.

The Solae deal allows Bunge "to redeploy capital into our strategic, core businesses," said Chief Financial Officer Drew Burke in a statement Tuesday.
