US agribusiness giant Monsanto rejected Tuesday the $62 billion takeover bid by Germany's Bayer AG as too low, but said it was willing to entertain further talks on a merger.
Monsanto said its board "unanimously views the Bayer AG proposal as incomplete and financially inadequate, but is open to continued and constructive conversations to assess whether a transaction in the best interest of Monsanto shareowners can be achieved."
