    • Yara International (OTCPK:YARIY) is in talks with CF Industries (NYSE:CF) about a possible merger of equals, a deal that would create a fertilizer giant with a market value of over $27B.
    • "The discussions are at an early stage, and there can be no assurances that these discussions will result in any transaction," says Yara in a filing.
    • Norway's government and possibly parliament would have to approve of any deal, as the state holds 36.2% of Yara, plus an additional 5% through state pension fund Folketrygdfondet.
