Bayer Reports $2.8-B Loss As Weedkiller Sales Slump

Germany's Bayer AG says it expects to take a €2.5-billion ($2.8-billion or £2.2-billion) hit from lower demand for its glyphosate-based products, including the weedkiller Roundup, Annabelle Liang reported for BBC News.

The announcement came as the company lowered its outlook for the year. In all, it has set aside over $15 billion (£11.7 billion) to settle lawsuits alleging its herbicides are linked to non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and other cancers.


It also forecast that its pre-tax profits could fall to as low as €11.3-billion this year, compared to the €13.5-billion it reported in 2022.



Bayer has denied wrongdoing but said the payouts would end "uncertainty." On Monday, the Leverkusen-based company said it expected a net loss of €2 billion in the three months to the end of June.


Bayer said this was mainly due to "A significant further decline in sales of glyphosate-based products."
