Bayer files for Monsanto takeover approval with EU regulators

FRANKFURT, June 30 (Reuters) - Bayer has filed a request for approval of its planned $66 billion takeover of U.S. seeds company Monsanto with European Union regulators, a spokesman for the German pharmaceuticals and pesticides maker said on Friday.

Bayer has previously said it was aiming to file by the end of this month and that it expected the EU Commission to conduct an in-depth antitrust assessment of the tie-up. (Reporting by Patricia Weiss; Writing by Ludwig Burger; Editign by Victoria Bryan)
