Changes to the Corporate Structure

In April 2016, Bayer AG deposited 10 million shares, or 4.9% of the issued shares, of Covestro AG in Bayer Pension Trust e.V. Bayer therefore currently still owns around 64% of Covestro.

In May 2016, Crop Science signed an agreement to divest the Consumer business of Environmental Science, which is now reported under discontinued operations. Environmental Science therefore now comprises only the business for professional users. The key data and prior-year figures are restated accordingly.
