Bayer bid $122 a share in cash in its May 10 written proposal, the Leverkusen, Germany-based company said in a statement on Monday. Bayer’s stock dropped as much as 3.6 percent, extending losses since the potential deal was first revealed and sending the shares to their lowest level in more than two years.
