Bayer   The Bayer Group can look back on a highly successful 2016.

“We took another major strategic step forward with the agreed acquisition of Monsanto, which is aimed at further strengthening Bayer,” CEO Werner Baumann said on Friday at the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting in Bonn. “Through the transaction, we intend to create substantial additional value in the long term,” he explained.

In terms of business, 2016 was another record year for Bayer, Baumann noted, adding that “both sales and adjusted EBITDA were higher than ever before.” The company’s shareholders are set to share in this encouraging performance, with the dividend being raised to EUR 2.70 per share from EUR 2.50 in the previous year. Baumann is also confident that the company is on track for success in the future: “We are optimistic for 2017 – and beyond.”
