Simon-Thorsten Wiebusch, Executive Director of Bayer CropScience Limited, commented on the quarterly results, stating that the sales growth in Q4 was driven by strong crop protection sales and consistent performance by the corn seeds business, despite facing some supply constraints during the quarter. He also mentioned that although the channel inventory remained at healthy levels, they were observing a normalization of Roundup prices and availability.

Simon Britsch, Chief Financial Officer of Bayer CropScience Limited, discussed the results of the fiscal year, stating that the steady performance of the crop protection and corn seeds portfolio contributed to a 9% growth in Revenue from Operations.

He acknowledged that higher operating expenses were incurred due to inflationary pressures but highlighted the company's continued investment in key initiatives for long-term growth. Additionally, he mentioned that the company had an exceptional income of Rs1,038 million from the sale of its Environmental Science Business in Q3 of FY 2022-23.

Bayer's performance in both the fiscal year and the fourth quarter of 2022-23 reflects its ability to adapt to market conditions and deliver sustainable growth.
