As of this morning, Dow Chemical, parent company of Dow AgroSciences, and DuPont have agreed to merge their companies. The $130 billion deal will eventually spin them into three separate companies, likely over a two-year period.

The combined company will be known as DowDuPont. The two companies, which generated a combined $92 billion in sales last year, would be the second-largest chemical company in terms of revenue after BASF of Germany, according to The New York Times.
