Latest company news about Bayer's net loss in 2020 was more than 10 billion euros

The recent financial report released by the German pharmaceutical and agrochemical giant Bayer shows that, mainly due to legal litigation and other factors, Bayer has a net loss of approximately 10.5 billion euros in 2020, a record loss.

Bayer CEO Werner Bowman pointed out that Bayer reached more than 20 mergers and acquisitions or cooperation agreements in the pharmaceutical business last year. In the future, it will continue to promote corporate transformation, broaden product pipelines, and invest in new technologies.

Bayer, headquartered in Leverkusen, Germany, has 750 production plants in 200 locations on six continents; it has 120,000 employees and 350 branches, almost all over the world.

On June 7, 2018, Bayer announced the completion of the acquisition of the American biotechnology company Monsanto, and Monsanto shareholders received a compensation of $128 per share.
