Antitrust issues loom large in Monsanto-Bayer deal

September 18, 2016 by legitgov

Antitrust issues loom large in Monsanto-Bayer deal | 18 Sept 2016 | Monsanto Chief Executive Hugh Grant sees "minimal" antitrust issues with Bayer’s purchase of his company, but he insisted on a $2 billion insurance policy against those very issues. The $2 billion is a breakup fee that Bayer must pay if regulators reject the $66 billion deal, and it was a priority for Monsanto during negotiations. Monsanto rejected Bayer's first offer in May partly because it didn't contain a breakup fee, and when Bayer later offered a $1 billion fee Monsanto said it was "insufficient to ensure deal certainty." Monsanto's insistence on the breakup fee highlights the uncertain nature of antitrust enforcement around the world, especially in a politically sensitive sector such as 'agriculture.'
