Bayer says clinches $66 bln Monsanto takeover

FRANKFURT, Sept 14 Bayer said on Wednesday it won over Monsanto's management with a $128 per share offer in cash, worth about $66 billion including debt, to take over the global seed market leader.

The companies have agreed on an antitrust break fee of $2 billion and the deal is expected to be closed by the end of 2017, the German group said in a statement.

Bayer intends to finance the transaction with a combination of debt and equity. The equity component of approximately $19 billion is expected to be raised through mandatory convertible bonds and a rights issue, it added. (Reporting by Ludwig Burger; Editing by Arno Schuetze)
