BayNews International, 04/27/2012
The Bayer Group saw a successful start to 2012. All the subgroups contributed to the encouraging increase in sales, particularly CropScience, which experienced a strong start to the season, Management Board Chairman Dr. Marijn Dekkers explained on Thursday when the first–quarter interim report was published. Earnings of the Group rose sharply. In view of the good start to 2012, we are increasingly confident for the rest of the year, Dekkers added. Given the continuing uncertainties, however, he said Bayer is currently adhering to the guidance for 2012 that was issued at the end of February.
