Walmart: Going Beyond Company Disclosures

Walmart has rounded out its fiscal year with a strong set of numbers that show it has taken supply chain disruption, rising costs, heavy inflation, and various other problems in its stride. There is comfortable growth on both the top and bottom lines, which is extremely respectable given tough prior year comparatives. Walmart hiring is slowing down as compared to hiring in the months of April and March in 2022. Walmart posted close to 40,000 vacancies in March and 30,000 in April, which has gone below 10,000 in June 2022. Walmart Company Filings has most of the mentions related to the ESG and COVID-19 themes in 2021. ESG has more than 300 mentions in the company’s 2021 filings which indicates the rising focus on ESG-related issues.

Agrosema has more than 30 years of experience in the agribusiness segment in southern Brazil.

With annual sales of around $60m across 12 farm centres, the company has approximately 200 employees providing services to several farm customers.

Nutrien president and CEO Chuck Magro said: “The Agrosema acquisition is an excellent fit as we continue to build our Ag retail business in the important and growing Brazilian agricultural market.

“We expect to continue to expand our operations in Brazil in the coming years, both through acquisition and expansion of product and service offerings.”

The addition of Agrosema is expected to enhance Nutrien’s existing retail operations in Brazil. It will also develop additional market channel for the company’s products, which are made at Agrichem business facility in Ribeirao Preto, São Paulo.

Completion of the transaction is based on approval by the Administrative Council for Economic Defense (CADE), as well as meeting other customary closing conditions.

Nutrien manufactures and distributes 27 million tonnes of potash, nitrogen and phosphate products worldwide.

It operates two main facilities in Brazil, a central fertiliser blending facility in Itapetininga, and six facilities in São Paulo and Minas Gerais.

Nutrien also owns specialty liquid fertilisers services provider, Agrichem.

In August last year, Nutrien gained the approval of the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission’s (ACCC) for the acquisition of agriservices businesses Ruralco.
