Bees are dying by the billions, but that's OK, you don't really need to be concerned about it unless you eat food.

Bayer reportedly interested in buying Monsanto
13 May, 2016 | RT


Quote:
German pharmaceutical giant Bayer is considering making a bid to buy American agrochemical company Monsanto, Bloomberg reports. With Monsanto’s $40 billion market cap, the combined enterprise would become the largest supplier of farm chemicals and seeds.

The deal is likely to raise many questions from competitors and authorities.

“Trying to do this merger is like going sailing in a tsunami. This is going to raise real significant concerns at the Justice Department,” a former departmental lawyer who has worked on behalf of farmers, David Balto, told the Financial Times.

The possible merger comes after Monsanto failed to acquire its rival, Switzerland’s Syngenta for about $46.2 billion last August. Syngenta was bought by ChemChina for reported $44 billion.

According to the FT sources, Monsanto held informal talks with two German chemicals companies – Bayer and BASF about the industry future, but no agreement on consolidating forces has been reached.

However, Monsanto doesn’t want to become a branch of a German company.

“Monsanto has no interest in being swallowed by a German group, it wants to remain American,” a person close to company management told the FT.

Another merger in the industry, the $130 billion deal joining Dow and DuPont, has made Monsanto’s position weaker in the market, paving the way for its negotiations with the German chemical producers.

Monsanto shares gained as much as 12 percent on Thursday on news of the potential merger.

Bayer and Monsanto: A Marriage Made in Hell
Steven MacMillan | 21.05.2016 | New Eastern Outlook


Quote:
In a world infected with a plethora of immoral multinational corporations, it is hard to think of two corporations who have more nefarious histories than Bayer AG and Monsanto. Considering this, it is a harrowing prospect that the two corporations could potentially strike a deal in the near future.

As Bloomberg reported earlier this month, Bayer AG – the German pharmaceutical and chemical corporation – is reportedly considering a bid for the agrochemical and biotechnology corporation, Monsanto. This comes two months after Monsanto showed some interest in acquiring Bayer Crop Sciences, a branch of Bayer AG.

Founded in 1863, Bayer may be familiar to many readers as the first company to widely sell and trademark Aspirin in the late nineteenth century. But there is a far more sinister history to this company that is often omitted.

Fun fact:

Bayer has a "neem oil" spray all over the garden store shelves.

Yeah, with like 75% "other ingredients ".

The bottle says

"Harmful to bees"

"Harmful to animals"

"Harmful to humans"
