By combining the manufacturing assets of BHC with Deere's existing manufacturing capacity, John Deere will have improved capability, efficiency, and geographic reach to satisfy customer needs."

Deere said the conditional offer is contingent upon the satisfactory completion of due diligence. Terms of the transaction were not made public. Deere said it anticipates completing due diligence in the 2nd quarter of its 2010 fiscal year.

Since it was founded in 1837, the company has extended its heritage of integrity, quality, commitment and innovation around the globe.
