Israel’s Rivulus Sold To Singapore’s Temasek For $365 Million

Rivulus, an Israeli company which innovates in the field of irrigation, has been sold to Singapore’s government holding company Temasek Holdings. Temasek is acquiring 85% of Rivulus, this according to an exclusive report in Calcalist today.
