With half of its fiscal year 2017 complete, Monsanto Company announced strong second quarter and first six months results. Earnings per share (EPS) reached $3.09 on an as-reported basis and $3.19 on an ongoing basis for the second quarter of fiscal year 2017. The company's performance was driven in part by strong gross profit growth from its corn and soybean businesses, the absence of the Argentine peso devaluation and benefit from the sale of its Latitude® wheat fungicide business. In reporting earnings results, executives reinforce confidence about the cumulative strength of the business, updating full-year guidance to the high end of the range for both as-reported and ongoing EPS. Monsanto also highlights progress in its merger with Bayer as both parties continue to work toward completion of the transaction by the end of calendar year 2017.

“We are delighted to have delivered such an excellent first half and strong second quarter, in the face of what is still a tough macro economy for agriculture,” said Hugh Grant, Monsanto chairman and chief executive officer. “While we’re increasing confidence in the outlook for the rest of the year, our emphasis at Monsanto is where it has always been - on bringing innovation to growers. Our proven innovation and unique platform advantages position us well to meet the challenges ahead, as well as make us an attractive, complementary partner for Bayer.”
