Last quote about Monsanto

Nick Flynn
It would control more than one-fourth of the combined global market for seeds and pesticides and lock farmers ever tighter into a supply chain for products that threaten biodiversity and food security by creating dangerous, genetically modified and pesticide-addicted monocultures.feedback

All quotes about Monsanto

Nathan Donley

California's decision makes it the national leader in protecting people from cancer-causing pesticides. The U.S. EPA now needs to step up and acknowledge that the world's most transparent and science-based assessment has linked glyphosate to cancer.feedback

Scott Partridge - Monsanto

This is not the final step in the process, and it has no bearing on the merits of the case. We will continue to aggressively challenge this improper decision.feedback

Robb Fraley - Monsanto Company

I would put RNA in the suite of really advanced, next-generation technologies that are adding to the excitement from a research perspective.feedback

Werner Baumann

We are in very good and constructive talks with the EU Commission's Competition Department. But we are not quite there yet.feedback

William Gallas

The Champions League is different to the Premier League. You need experience, you need to be more clever and stay focused. If you compare our squad back then with now, we had many older and more experienced players.feedback

William Gallas

It was a big shame what happened to them last season, but this Tottenham squad is a little too young for the Champions League. Against Monaco and Bayer Leverkusen in the group games, it showed that they needed more experience.feedback

Kerrey Kerr-Enskat

That comes with a lot of responsibility. It's not just about row crops -- we don't want to waste that opportunity [to engage with the public].feedback

Sarah Davidson Evanega

There's great optimism that this time we'll do communications better. The great hope is that CRISPR is going to be different.feedback

Neal Gutterson - DuPont Pioneer

It's more about social science than science. [It's] ultimately about getting social license for this technology.feedback

Kerrey Kerr-Enskat

For GMOs, they waited until the product hit the market before there was a lot of communication. But this is a two-way engagement.feedback

Andy Birchfield
Brian Barr

They "will continue to press forward with the legal claims of the thousands of innocent victims of this drug.feedback

Jose Tarazona

The observer from the US-EPA [Rowlands] informed participants during the teleconference about potential flaws in the Kumar (2001) study related to viral infections.feedback

Franziska Achterberg - Greenpeace

Any meddling by Monsanto in regulatory safety assessments would be wholly unacceptable. We urgently need a thorough investigation into the Efsa assessment before glyphosate can be considered for re-approval in Europe.feedback

Jose Tarazona

The issue of 'high background incidence' is something common to all studies that use that strain of mouse. There was [also] the fact that the effect was observed only at a very high dose level.feedback

Bart Staes - European Parliament

It makes no sense to accept the wide range of risks associated with glyphosate.feedback

Andy Kimbrell - Center for Food Safety

So yes, that gives them a marketing problem. But Monsanto has plenty of money to advocate for GMOs ... Why do we need to use taxpayer dollars?feedback

John May

We are deeply disappointed in this outcome as we remain confident the acquisition would have benefited customers. With an opportunity to see this to conclusion, we believe it would have been clear the challenge to the transaction was based on flawed assessments of the marketplace. As a world leader in precision agriculture, John Deere will continue developing technology-based products and services to help customers improve the productivity and profitability of their operations.feedback

Lionel Henderson - World Wide Fund for Nature

Monsanto develop the traits, we then work with Monsanto to incorporate those traits into varieties we are breeding.feedback

Werner Baumann

Monsanto's image does of course represent a major challenge for us, and it's not an aspect I wish to play down. Yet we are facing this challenge with all those qualities that have made us what we are today: openness, expertise and responsibility.feedback

Werner Wenning - Bayer

Over the past 35 years, Johannes Dietsch has contributed to the success of Bayer in a number of different functions. We are very grateful to him for this service and would like to wish him all the best for when he leaves.feedback

Richard Pazdur - Food and Drug Administration

Limited treatment options are available for patients with liver cancer. This is the first time patients with HCC have had an FDA-approved treatment that can be used if their cancer has stopped responding to initial treatment with sorafenib.feedback

Neil Genzlinger

When your opposition consists of giant corporations like Monsanto (the companies are not heard from in the film, by the way), you'd better bring more to the fight than a flute and some folk tales.feedback

Carlo Ancelotti

The performance of the team was good. We played with great intensity, had many possibilities, but sometimes a tie happens. I think we deserved a win. We earned it, but Bayer Leverkusen fought superbly. We have to accept it.feedback

Tayfun Korkut - Bayer

We knew we would suffer a lot. That we would not have much possession. I am proud of the team and the way we have kept this point here.feedback

Fiorella Belpoggi

Exposed animals had no evident differences from non-exposed animals. But this tells us very little at the moment, because the examinations of key parameters that could be affected by exposure are still being done (and) we are waiting for those results. We are focused on reproductive and developmental issues, in other words, whether glyphosate ... affects the development of embryos, fetuses and pups. This was to ensure we would have the best experts analyze each end point.feedback

Fiorella Belpoggi

We would like to have the results in time to help regulators have a good judgment about this chemical. If it is negative (no effect), then I will be happy because I am also exposed. But if there is some damage, then we would like everyone to know.feedback

Hans-Joachim Watzke - Borussia Dortmund

Bartra is feeling better today, however, but he will be kept under observation for some hours more in the hospital before being discharged. We're not just playing for ourselves tonight (against Monaco). We're playing for everyone, whether they're Borussia Dortmund, Bayer or Schalke. We want to show that terror and hate shall never determine our actions. And of course, we're playing for Marc Bartra, who wants to see his team win.feedback

Hans-Joachim Watzke - Borussia Dortmund

The BVB family was particularly strong when it had to cope with difficult situations. This is perhaps the most difficult situation we have had in the past decades. And I am sure that we will show ourselves as BVB as strong and closed as never before! We do not just play for us today. We play for everyone. No matter whether Borussia, Bayer [Leverkusen] or Schalke. We want to show that terror and hatred can never determine our actions. And of course we play for Marc Bartra, who wants to see his team win. I just called the team in the cabin to show the company that we did not bend before terror.feedback

Jonathan Tucker

He examined his eyes in a mirror and discovered that his pupils had constricted to pinpoints, giving him an eerie, zombie-like appearance.feedback

Chris Packham

We're up against agro-chemical businesses like Monsanto and Bayer. That's why no one's getting involved: no one has the balls. I think Jen's come to accept that I have chosen to talk about some of the things that she thought were painful. She texted me a little while ago, a reference to an article about 'curing' autism. I texted back saying: 'That would have saved you a lot of boring dinner times.' And she texted back: 'I would have missed the colour.feedback

Jurgen Brandt

It is fake news that Julian has agreed terms with Bayern. Julian has never been in the situation where he had to - or wanted to - make a decision on his future.feedback

Adrian Bebb - Friends of the Earth

We think these cooperations have already a toxic grip on our food supply and if these mergers are allowed to happen then we think it will be a marriage made in hell. It's going to be bad for farmers, it is going to be bad for the consumers and it is going to be bad for nature. We think the European Commission should stop these mergers from happening.feedback

Philip Wells

The demonstrated safety of both 20 and 10 mg of rivaroxaban to prevent recurrent VTE in the extended treatment setting will add flexibility and comfort for doctors, and it should result in better patient outcomes.feedback

Tayfun Korkut - Bayer

Oblak was there and made the saves, but he had four or five team-mates throwing themselves at the ball and we couldn't find the space to score. That's a demonstration of how well this side defends and how much they do not want to concede. This is football - you have to defend your goal well. We also showed that we have the quality to cause damage; not a lot of sides come here creating six or seven clear chances but we did and we take this as a positive moving forward.feedback

Franziska Achterberg - Greenpeace

ECHA has gone to great lengths to sweep all evidence that glyphosate can cause cancer under the carpet. The data vastly exceeds what's legally necessary for the EU to ban glyphosate, but ECHA has looked the other way. For the EU to make decisions based on science, it can't distort the facts. If the EU doesn't get this right, people and the environment will continue to be the lab rats of the chemical industry.feedback

Fernando Torres

Comebacks can always happen, not just because of what happened in Barcelona. It will be a tough game and I'm expecting a similar game to the first leg in which they can create chances. We want to play our game and we are expecting a fight.feedback

Tim Bowmer

Glyphosate should not be classified as a carcinogen, that is, as a substance causing cancer. This conclusion was based both on the human evidence and the weight of the evidence of all of the animal studies reviewed.feedback

Graeme Taylor

Science prevailed. Glyphosate is not carcinogenic. We expect the European commission to move swiftly with the registration process for the substance in the EU and grant a 15-year approval.feedback

Marion Copley

I have cancer and I don't want these serious issues in HED [health effects division] to go unaddressed before I go to my grave. I have done my duty.feedback

Robin Greenwald

People should know that there are superb scientists in the world who would disagree with Monsanto and some of the regulatory agencies' evaluations, and even E.P.A. has disagreement within the agency. Even in the E.U., there's been a lot of disagreement among the countries. It's not so simple as Monsanto makes it out to be.feedback

Timothy Litzenburg

I think it's important that people hold Monsanto accountable when they say one thing and it's completely contradicted by very frank internal documents.feedback

William F. Heydens - Monsanto Company

We would be keeping the cost down by us doing the writing and they would just edit & sign their names so to speak.feedback

Jonathan Scott

When you go to SNL and Leslie pulls out reno plans to review. Any other cast renos I can help with? How about a meditation room for Vanessa [Bayer], karaoke studio for Kenan [Thompson] and a karate dojo for Kate [McKinnon]?feedback

Bektas Demirtas

Hakan will be [under contract] at Leverkusen for three years. If an offer comes along that is fine for Bayer and which also fits with Hakan, we will do a transfer. But the final decision lies with the club.feedback

Werner Baumann

The fact that with the combination of both companies' competencies, we can develop better solutions faster, that will provide benefits to farmers and people in the world, by providing affordable and safe food for an ever-growing population.feedback

Werner Baumann

We price our drugs in line with their innovation potential and in line with the competitive environment. I think even more importantly, President Trump could develop a better understanding of the overall health care market, the industry and what is driving cost up really. If you look at pharmaceutical pricing - as a total share of health care funding it actually has not changed since the early 1960s and has been very stable around 10 percent. The combination of Bayer's crop business and Monsanto's business is actually all about innovation.feedback

Werner Baumann

We have said we plan to fully divest the stake over the medium term, without speaking about the modalities. As to how that will play out, there are many ways. Covestro is a highly attractive company and that is now also reflected in the market value.feedback

Laura Tamayo - Monsanto Company

It's going to take a long while for all the evidence to be presented. I think we're talking years. But there's no magic wand to do that. We made a mistake; it's just that simple. For 18 years we didn't explain (to the consumer) what is biotechnology, what's it for and why it's safe.feedback

Peder Holk Nielsen - Novozymes

There's a risk that the huge focus Monsanto has had on biological solutions will be less at Bayer. That's not our expectation, but we don't know until the transaction is finalised.feedback

Peder Holk Nielsen - Novozymes

My sense is that even if they remove the entire legislation on bioethanol, consumption in the United States will still be high, although probably a little less that today.feedback

Scott Enright

Even though they're doing similar work, Syngenta, Monsanto Dow and Pioneer are all competitors, and they're trying to keep the millions of dollars that they've put in to research the genetics lines that they're developing as confidential business information. You're basically limiting somebody's use of their private property, without just cause if you don't have the science to back up what you're asking for.feedback

Jim Cramer

When you spot these highly unusual moves you may be able to strap yourself into a real moon shot.feedback

Alfredo Paseyro

The three years proposed by the government is not adequate because it takes longer to develop new seed varieties.feedback

Alfredo Paseyro

The time during which royalties have to be paid will have to be negotiated in a way that works for both the seed industry and the farmers. The good news is that now both parties are willing to negotiate.feedback

Kemal Malik - Bayer

Accessing cell-based therapies is part of Bayer's strategy. We are launching this enterprise to develop transformative and curative therapies for patients based on the latest stem cell technology.feedback

Harry Stine

They just wanted to make sure you weren't having some farmer just go to a bin (of genetically modified seeds) and plant whatever he wanted. Other than that, they were fine with the program.feedback

Myron Stine

Bayer despises that we're doing it. We are constantly changing things to fit what Bayer wants.feedback

Charla Lord - Monsanto Company

PCBs sold at the time were a lawful and useful product that was then incorporated by third parties into other useful products. If improper disposal or other improper uses created the necessity for clean-up costs, then these other third parties would bear responsibility for these costs.feedback

Stephane Ekolo

Market participants are trying to assess the impact of the Trump's victory. But I expect rotation from low volatility sectors such as utilities into banks or tech companies to continue until the end of the year.feedback

Markus Mayer

The 300-400 basis points premium on the average of other deals is high ... makes the Monsanto takeover even more value destroying and might mirror the insecurity on the deal and the pending capital raise.feedback

Nathan Donley

Piling on more pesticides will just result in superweeds resistant to more pesticides.feedback

Benny Loft

Prices on crops have fallen, which makes many farmers not invest in long-term solutions (for their crops) and only buy the grains instead of the technology that we offer.feedback

Frank Lutz

It looks like the positive development in China has been underestimated.feedback

Erik Fyrwald

I think it is likely and we are expecting it, but it is not certain. The process was going along and then on Sept. 14 ... the Bayer and Monsanto deal was announced, since then in both the U.S. and the EU there has been a very large escalation in data requests and questions.feedback

Liam Condon

Be assured that Bayer will have a unified croporate culture.feedback

Sonny Beck - Beck's

If they say, we're going to keep it all for ourselves,' that would hurt us.feedback

Todd Martin

It's the big question that everybody is looking at right now. Anything that does not support the expansion of the licensing market, we are against.feedback

James Collins - DuPont

Especially in agriculture, innovation is a requirement not a choice.feedback

Hugh Grant - Monsanto Company

Consolidation in the industry is a prerequisite to further investment in R&D.feedback

Markus Heldt - BASF

Farmers don't want to lock into any particular combination of seeds and crop chemical at an early stage. You can sell the two in the bundle, but only if you happen to have the best product in each category. Not even the biggest companies could secure such a dominant position.feedback

Hugh Grant - Monsanto Company

It will ... create an innovation engine for the next generation of farming.feedback

Mike Lee

The transaction has the potential to result in a significant loss of competition and reduced incentives and ability to innovate, thereby raising prices.feedback

Bernie Sanders

These mergers boost the profits of huge corporations and leave Americans paying even higher prices.feedback

Diana Moss

People don't get the enormous impact that these deals can have on innovation markets. You need more innovators in there battling it out so that you actually do produce new technology for farmers.feedback

Craig Brown - National Cotton Council of America

I would have to say this: I think there will be some concern from the growers because of the consolidation.feedback

Mark Dampier - Hargreaves Lansdown

My view on the market is that it's going to be pretty flat, possibly down, over the next few days while they wait for yet another ... macro-statistical event to come out.feedback

Jeffrey Wolford - Jefferies

Given recent updates on the Monsanto approach suggest a final conclusion may be close, we suspect (Bayer) will work hard to try and reach a final conclusion before the Meet Management event, if possible.feedback

Jane Norberg - Securities and Exchange Commission

Company employees are in unique positions behind-the-scenes to unravel complex or deeply buried wrongdoing. Without this whistleblower's courage, information, and assistance, it would have been extremely difficult for law enforcement to discover this securities fraud on its own.feedback

Kavita Gupta

Despite the whitefly attack, farmers in northern India are still interested in cotton, but they are moving to the desi (indigenous) variety.feedback

Keshav Raj Kranthi

Just wait for the crucial three to four years to see a complete, natural turnaround. By then most farmers will give up Bt cotton and go for the indigenous variety.feedback

Andrea Williams - Royal London Asset Management

I am happy that the new offer made by Bayer did not go as far as $135-$140. However I don't think it will be enough -- Monsanto management rejected the $122 offer as financially inadequate.feedback

Christopher Kapsch - Bb&T Capital Markets

He "could see a little extra motivation to do something with Monsanto because the eventual commercialization of seeds with the Dicambra tolerance trait.feedback

Mark Connelly - CLSA

They are under pressure to start delivering on promises, and it's been a long time since they've done that.feedback

Christopher Kapsch - Bb&T Capital Markets

By engaging in conversations with BASF, the message to Bayer is you either have to give us a better price or we may consider doing something with BASF. I don't think they believe selling for $125 (per share) today is in the best interests of shareholders... and I do believe they are still considering being a consolidator and not a consolidee.feedback

Werner Baumann

We are convinced that this transaction is the best opportunity available to provide Monsanto shareholders with highly attractive, immediate and certain value. Bayer is fully committed to pursuing this transaction.feedback

Rodrigo Santos - Monsanto Company

We want to foster new startups in the agricultural sector. There is a vast area for research and development.feedback

Kurt Straif - World Health Organization

Our evaluation was a review of all the published scientific literature on glyphosate and this was done by the world's best experts on the topic that in addition don't have any conflicts of interest that could bias their assessment, and they concluded that, yes, glyphosate is probably carcinogenic to humans based on three strings of evidence, that is clear evidence of cancer in experimental animals, limited evidence for cancer for humans from real-world exposures, of exposed farmers, and also strong evidence that it can damage the genes from any kind of other toxicological studies.feedback

Kurt Straif - World Health Organization

It is an important topic that needs important scrutiny, yes.feedback

Kurt Straif - World Health Organization

I think it's important to understand the literature that our assessment that glyphosate can cause cancer in humans still stands, and then you have to look at the other assessments for the specific scenarios, and that is not my authority to comment on these evaluations.feedback

Kurt Straif - World Health Organization

Our classification of the cancer hazards of glyphosate still stand. We are the authority to classify cancer substances worldwide for the WHO, and it was then this other panel that looked at a very narrow angle of exposure from daily food, and then came up with the conclusion on how much of that may be safe or not.feedback

Kurt Straif - World Health Organization

This is really an independent review of all the published literature that then leads to a classification about what we know about the substance and particularly its cancer-causing effects, but then it's up to other agencies, the WHO internationally or other national agencies to turn that into a risk assessment and decide on the different exposures in our use, for farmers, from our diet, in cosmetics, wherever the substance can end up, to come up with conclusions.feedback

Michael Rubin

It happened shortly before the rapeseed colza harvest. In our region the colza is sprayed to death. My animals were harmed because at the very moment the colza was treated with glyphosate, they were exposed to the toxic mist. They got cramps, they got diarrhoea, they died within days.feedback

Ariane Failer

There is just ten meters between the property line and the enclosure for my dogs. It is unavoidable that the wind carries glyphosate to us… We cannot do anything. She had been operated on the lower milk line to remove tumours, but they came back. Two of them you can see: cancer is growing there… and there. Four tumours on the same milk line.feedback

Michael Rubin

Have a look yourself: this is my hayfield, some 16 to 17 hectares. It is surrounded by cornfields treated with herbicides.feedback

Hans Von

Well, glyphosate – such as Roundup and other brands – is sold almost everywhere. You can buy it without difficulty.feedback

Hans Von

Once you start digging into this story, you'll get a kind of feeling that all this is not just about science – but about politics. So, let's have a talk with the politicians….feedback

Hans Von

Well, looks impressive… A field not sprayed with glyphosate and it's a sheer riot of colours.feedback

Hugh Grant - Monsanto Company

Over the past several weeks, with the support of our board and advisors, I have personally been in discussions with Bayer's management regarding this proposal, along with others regarding other strategic alternatives.feedback

Pierre Courduroux - Monsanto Company

We encountered several headwinds in the quarter. These included the expected absence of last year's Scotts licensing agreements and the anticipated glyphosate pricing declines.feedback

Laurence Alexander - Jefferies

The combination of weak results and a weaker-than-expected outlook suggests a more conciliatory tone will be taken to merger proposals. We expect a modestly better proposal (e.g. break-up fee, antitrust tactics) before Monsanto's annual meeting.feedback

Brett Wong - Piper Jaffray

In our view, a Bayer/Monsanto combination helps to ensure the new company will remain a leader among a changing [agribusiness] backdrop with a more formidable competitor in Dow/DuPont and likely market disruption from the potential Syngenta/ChemChina combination.feedback

Brett Wong - Piper Jaffray

For antitrust purposes, we expect that Bayer will have to divest seed crossover, which would be primarily cotton, canola and some vegetables. Assuming that BASF is the stand-alone ... [agribusiness] major at the end of this consolidation wave, we believe BASF (a chemical producer based in Germany) would potentially be a leading strategic buyer of the divested seed assets given its historical intent to purchase a seed business.feedback

John Bennett

Bayer have backed themselves into a corner. The money would have been better spent buying their own stock. Alas, for shareholders, it was not to be.feedback

Greg Herbert

The company will be left with a highly geared balance sheet and the management effort to integrate the two businesses could easily lead to the larger pharmaceutical business being neglected.feedback

Graeme Taylor

With this decision all they do is cast doubt on that system, and create fear and confusion amongst Europe's consumers.feedback

Franziska Achterberg - Greenpeace

Extending the glyphosate licence would be like smelling gas and refusing to evacuate to check for a leak. As long as there is no meaningful EU-wide restriction on glyphosate use, we will continue to live in a world that is awash in a weedkiller which is a likely cause of cancer.feedback

Melissa Harper - Monsanto Company

The opportunity to use data in meaningful and new ways means that we need new and different types of skills and competences to drive agriculture technology forward.feedback

Melissa Harper - Monsanto Company

That partnership shows up as an opportunity to create an annual development program where selected students join us at our world's headquarters and spend time with us learning about the agro business broadly, but also preparing for future careers.feedback

Melissa Harper - Monsanto Company

Some of the most difficult-to-fill positions tend to be software engineers. The competition is vast. Everyone is looking for data scientists, those are people who not only understand data but have the ability to translate it into commercial insights for farmers, and the third would be cybersecurity.feedback

Hugh Grant - Monsanto Company

We believe in the substantial benefits an integrated strategy could provide to growers and broader society, and we have long respected Bayer's business. However, the current proposal significantly undervalues our company and also does not adequately address or provide reassurance for some of the potential financing and regulatory execution risks related to the acquisition.feedback

Werner Baumann

We fully expect a positive answer of the Monsanto board of directors.feedback

Markus Manns

The price that has now been disclosed is at the upper limit and it is just about economical. Should it rise further, which is to be assumed, the takeover will become increasingly unattractive.feedback

Alex Holmes - Capital Economics

It is clear that the Fed is ready to move again soon. And if expectations of a June hike continue to build, the Fed may well take the opportunity to take another step towards normalization next month without fear of surprising the markets.feedback

Marietta Miemietz

While the leverage appears to be manageable from a (credit) ratings perspective, we believe that it would curtail Bayer's strategic flexibility in the Healthcare space.feedback

Markus Manns

After a Monsanto deal it can largely be ruled out for Bayer to retain the financial flexibility over the next two to three years for acquisitions in the pharma market.feedback

John Bennett

I had hoped that the days of such arrogant empire-building and ignorance of the actual owners of the business were at an end.feedback

Alistair Campbell - Joh. Berenberg, Gossler & Co.

Bayer's pharma business is in excellent health today, but the clock is ticking regarding rebuilding its pipeline and recent newsflow has been disappointing.feedback

Franziska Achterberg - Greenpeace

This is no surprise, since the commission has continued to ignore the concerns of independent scientists, [EU lawmakers] and European citizens.feedback

Ulrich Huwald - Warburg Research

A combination of both companies would create $67 billion of annual sales and the world's largest seed and crop-chemical company. However, the question is if Monsanto would be interested in a deal.feedback

Barbara Hendricks

It's proven that glyphosate has negative effects on the environment. That needs to be fully taken into account for the approval. Given that there is still uncertainty about the health risks associated with glyphosate, the SPD-led ministries will not agree to the approval of glyphosate.feedback

Bart Staes - European Parliament

It is scandalous that the Commission is ramming through an EU approval for glyphosate to be used with no restrictions, despite the very serious concerns about the impact of this toxic substance on public health and the environment. Clearly banning glyphosate would be the responsible course of action.feedback

Ajay Vir Jakhar

India is too huge a seed market for anyone to leave (of) one's own choice.feedback

Shilpa Divekar - Monsanto India

We sincerely hope that the government will be fair in its approach and that certain reports in the public domain are false... It is difficult for MMBL to justify bringing new technologies into India in an environment where such arbitrary and innovation stifling government interventions make it impossible to recoup research and development investments focused on delivering extensive farmer benefits and where sanctity of contracts is absent.feedback

Shilpa Divekar Nirula - Monsanto Company

If the committee recommends imposing a sharp, mandatory cut in the trait fees paid on Bt-cotton seeds, MMB will have no choice but to re-evaluate every aspect of our position in India. It is difficult for MMB to justify bringing new technologies into India in an environment where such arbitrary and innovation stifling government interventions make it impossible to recoup research and development investments.feedback

Sarah Sorscher - Public Citizen

The FDA unacceptably puts patients at risk by allowing the device to continue to be marketed as this surveillance study proceeds.feedback

Kurt Bock - BASF

We feel very comfortable with what we have. We are very disciplined in our approach. You have to answer the question how do you create value for your shareholders and you have to look at multiples and price expectations.feedback

Daniel Wendorff - Commerzbank

The outlook is conservative in the context of the CEO handover. The intention was arguably not to burden the successor with too ambitious targets, but the outlook is below our estimates and below consensus.feedback

Michel Demare

We are working hard on our savings programme. We will be able to show margin improvement this year, perhaps as the only one in the sector.feedback

Michel Demare

A combination with DuPont would have made a lot of sense for us, but unfortunately that is off the table now.feedback

Michel Demare

An offer price has to be measured against our share price without any latent takeover fantasies. And I believe such a price would be closer to our ideas.feedback

Michel Demare

China is a serious partner and has to be taken into consideration. The Chinese have made big takeovers in the West, mostly successful, as the examples of Volvo and Lenovo show. We view ChemChina with the same seriousness as Monsanto, Bayer or BASF.feedback

Mike Mack - Syngenta

I believe that this is an appropriate time for the company to benefit from the perspectives of a new leader.feedback

Medardo Avila Vasquez

If a woman gets pregnant during the period of crop fertilization, the risk is very high that she will have a disabled baby.feedback

Christoph Debets

When you search for the reasons for Germany's economic strength, you might think of the big names of her industrial history like Bayer or Porsche, Thyssen-Krupp or Siemens; you might think of regions like the Ruhr, Hamburg, Rhein-Main (Frankfurt) or Stuttgart. But we found the answers somewhere else.feedback

Jean Philippe Delsart - Monsanto Company

For Monsanto, there was no evidence of a causal link between the symptoms presented by Mr. Francois and the inhalation of a weedkiller.feedback

Joel Spiroux

Therefore these tests give no real information about the effects of genetically modified food on health over a lifetime.feedback

Francois Dufour

There should be no GMO's in our fields, and the ruling confirms this. It encourages us to continue to influence the political debate and eliminate GMO's from agriculture.feedback

Frederic Vincent

If this is proved and based on sound scientific evidence then the European Commission will obviously act accordingly.feedback

Mark Tester

There is no clearly defined data analysis and it would appear the authors have gone on a statistical fishing trip.feedback

Gleb Shatunovsky

Paris Saint-Germain luckily avoided the two unseeded English heavyweights City and Arsenal and will play against a more welcomed opponent in Bayer Leverkusen who are already labeled as the underdogs. But, second in the Bundesliga this season behind Bayern Munich, they are underdogs with huge potential for causing an upset.feedback
