ABSTRACT
The article comments on CF Industries Holdings Inc.'s plan to go public. A mutually beneficial relationship between fertilizer maker CF Industries Holdings Inc. and the co-ops that own it--and, until recently, have been its primary customers--is coming apart. The players plan to part company via a $700-million initial public offering (IPO)--potentially one of the biggest IPOs in 2005. Long Grove-based CF has not disclosed how many shares will be issued and has not set a price. There is also no target date. But in the firm's registration statement, the owners say they plan to whittle their stake in CF to 25% through the IPO.
