Aandeel Bayer keldert na kankerschandaal

Graphic News

May 15, 2019 -- Negatieve jury-uitspraak heeft meer dan 40% van de marktwaarde van Bayer weggevaagd sinds augustus 2018, nu de Duitse farmaciegroep de schades door zijn op glyfosaat gebaseerde onkruidverdelger moet betalen.

A jury in California on Monday awarded more than $2bn to a couple who said the weedkiller Roundup was responsible for their cancer.

It is the third time that the German pharmaceutical group Bayer has been ordered to pay damages over its glyphosate-based herbicide.

Bayer, which acquired Roundup maker Monsanto for $63 billion last year, denies the allegations, saying decades of studies and regulatory approvals have shown glyphosate and Roundup to be safe for human use.

But the company faces similar U.S. lawsuits by more than 13,400 plaintiffs and shareholders have rebuked Bayer’s top management over its handling of the Monsanto acquisition and the litigation it inherited.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
