BERLIN (AP) German pharmaceutical giant Bayer AG says its cutting 12,000 jobs worldwide as it seeks to reduce costs.
The Leverkusen-based company said TODAY that details of the cuts to its 118,200-stong workforce would be worked out in coming months but that a significant number of the reductions would come in Germany.
Bayer acquired U.S. seed and weed-killer maker Monsanto Co. this year. It says with the synergies expected from the acquisition of Monsanto and other efficiency and structural measures, including the job cuts, Bayer anticipates annual contributions of 2.6 billion euros from 2022 on.
