AGCO Corp. said that it was subject to a ransomware attack on Thursday that impacted some of its production facilities.

The manufacturer and distributor of agricultural equipment said it is still investigating the extent of the attack, but it is anticipated that its business operations will be adversely affected for several days and potentially longer to fully resume all services, depending upon how quickly it is able to repair its systems.

The company said it will provide updates as the situation progresses.

AGCO stock was down 2% to $128.50 in premarket trading.
