Is Bayer's Monsanto Rejection Good News for Shareholders?
23:12 - Bayer AG, whose $62 billion takeover bid was rejected earlier by Monsanto Co., said it’s confident it can overcome the seed company’s concerns about the regulatory and financing risks related to a deal that would create the world’s largest supplier of seeds and crop chemicals. The German company said Tuesday it looks forward to further talks with Monsanto. Hours earlier, St. Louis-based Monsanto announced its board decided unanimously to spurn the all-cash offer for being too low. The U.S. company added that it believes in the benefits a merger would bring and that it respected Bayer’s business, leaving the door open for further discussions. Bloomberg's Aaron Kirchfeld reports and Devere Group Investment Strategist Tom Elliott discusses with Bloomberg's Francine Lacqua on "The Pulse."
