The CPSI said such a model, which allows the SFO to shore up its staffing levels with external experts for big cases, could damage investigations, did not provide value for money and prevented the agency from building future expertise in-house. "There is therefore an inherent lack of consistency in (SFO) teams, which becomes particularly problematic because of the lengthy nature of SFO investigations," the report said.

Monsanto's 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," the statement said.
