Bayer   Third quarter of 2014: Bayer operationally strong –
strategic focus on Life Science businesses

The Bayer Group continued its successful business development. “The strong upward trend in the Life Science businesses – HealthCare and CropScience – persisted in the third quarter. We saw robust sales growth for our recently launched pharmaceutical products and in our CropScience business in North and Latin America," Bayer Management Board Chairman Dr. Marijn Dekkers commented when the interim report was released on Thursday. Sales of MaterialScience also posted an encouraging increase, he said. Bayer achieved a slight improvement in EBITDA before special items despite high investment and negative currency effects. Bayer made good progress in the third quarter not just operationally, but also strategically, Dekkers said, pointing to the planned flotation of MaterialScience on the stock market and the successful acquisition of the consumer care business of Merck & Co., Inc. In view of the strong operational performance and including the consumer care business acquired from Merck & Co., Inc. and the current currency assumptions, Bayer raised its guidance for 2014.

Bayer   Today is World Stroke Day.
Let's spread the word and create awareness for stroke!
Knowing symptoms means protecting yourself and others.

A simple and easily identifiable sign of AF is an irregular pulse. The symptoms may include palpitations, chest pain or discomfort. Besides, shortness of breath, dizziness and fainting may occur. However, AF is commonly without symptoms and therefore frequently not apparent until a person goes to see the doctor with a complication such as ischaemic stroke, a blood clot in the leg or heart failure. On the contrary, symptoms of stroke are far more evident and can include impaired speech or vision, paralysis, or a dimming of consciousness. In the case of a stroke, the same applies as with a heart attack: a stroke should be treated quickly and preventive measures can be taken to lower the risk.
