French company CEVA entered into a definitive agreement with Sichuan Hengtong to acquire a  majority stake in its animal health subsidiary in China.

The signing, which was done in CEVA's headquarters in Libourne, was witnessed by officials from the Chinese Embassy in Paris and the French Ministry of Foreign Trade.

In the event the transaction is completed, CEVA will now increase its presence in China, particularly in the area of pharmaceuticals for animal health.
