AgroFresh Solutions to amend warrant purchase agreement
In order to create an atmosphere conducive to share repurchases, the company filed an 8K with the SEC, effectively updating an initial contract with three parties — Rohm and Haas Company, Boulevard Acquisition Sponsor and The Dow Chemical Company — dated July 31, 2015.
The action represents support of the company on the part of both Dow and Avenue Capital, a global investment firm. AgroFresh, slated for purchase by Boulevard Corporation earlier in 2015 from Dow Chemical, was developed as Dow's post-harvest specialty chemical branch.
AgroFresh Solutions works from data-driven solutions to allow growers and packagers of fresh produce to preserve and enhance the purity, quality and value of their crops — and reduce waste. The company has also developed ethylene management products to deliver environmentally friendly solutions for keeping ornamental flowers and plants fresh, healthy and beautiful.
AgroFresh Solutions’ signature product is its branded SmartFresh Quality System, a freshness protection technology proven to maintain the firmness, texture and appearance of fruit during storage and transport.
