TOKYO, Oct. 22 /Xinhua-PRNewswire/ -- Olympus Capital Holdings Asia and its co-investors today announced that they have reached an agreement to sell Arysta LifeScience Corporation, the world's largest privately held crop- protection and life-science company, for an enterprise value of approximately JPY 250 billion (US$2.2 billion).
